Chris and Lou

Chris and Lou

BandPopAdult Contemporary

Chris and Lou are consistantly good vocally and musically, time after time. Their original music is well written, and is received as well as any cover songs they might play. Very few acoustic duos are better at what we do. Very few acostic duos can pull off the harmonies like Chis and Lou!!


Chris and Lou are one of the most consistantly good acoustic duos around. Vocals and guitar work are spot on at most every show, with a sound comparable to Lowen and Navarro, Simon and Garfunkle, The Beatles, and anyone else who is known for a consistant sound. The duo plays 250+ a year in the Chicago/Northwest Indiana area alone. Gigs range from clubs, casinos, and festivals to private parties and corporate events. The music ranges from award winning original material to classic 60s through now, specializing in Beatle songs and hits that have withstood the test of time.

Chris and Lou have been voted Top Acoustic Group in 2005 and 2007, and were honored with title of Best CD of 2005 by the Midwest Beat Magazine Reader's Poll for the "Radioville" CD, along with their former band Electric X. Chris and Lou have also won several awards for music written and recorded for advertising campaigns. These include a Silver Promax Award, Summit Creative Award, Siver Dome Award, and an EMMY nomination in 2006 for their work as composers and Co-Producers on "Everything Begins With Today" for NBC 5 in Chicago.
