Chicago West House Band Summer Dates nearly over
August 22, 2019

House Band Summer Season Coming to a Close

2019 was our first full-throttle House Band summer. With Anthony's leadership and Ashleigh's logistics we were booked for over 15 events all around Chicagoland and our kids attacked every one like a group of pros. Our House Band members, ages 17-12, have developed into a real collective force on stage and we were proud to watch their development accelerate as the summer went on. Shows included Go Division's main stage, West Fest's main stage, Wicker Park main stage, Lobster Fest at Navy Pier, a pre-Opening event for SoR Park Ridge, House of Blues' I Am Fest (main ballroom), the Woodstock Anniversary Tribute in Aurora, IL, along with several others. Thank you to all our parents who got their kids where they needed to be and supported them from the crowd. Thanks also to all our amazing staff and faculty who helped prepare and train these amazing young performers. Even bigger and better to come!

Best. Show. Yet. Spring Season's AC/DC and 1-Hit Wonders Slay.

Thanks to Beat Kitchen for providing another perfect setting for showcasing these emerging musicians. Thanks to Ashleigh and Zachary for watching the big picture so we could all watch rock and roll history. :) Wish you were here...
