Biography

The Chi-Town Showstoppers are the band you’ve got to see and hear! This 12-piece ensemble is truly a class act and has been garnering rave reviews at every performance around Chicagoland, from corporate parties to town festivals to private parties and weddings. Fronted by two of the hottest vocalists you’ve ever heard, backed by the tightest rhythm section in town, and featuring a luscious 6-man horn section, there isn’t another group working in the Chicago area that can match a Showstoppers performance. This seasoned group of professionals makes the music come alive with a fantastic, energetic show and incredible musicianship. The musicians have performed from coast to coast in some of the top venues in the USA, and have come together as friends and colleagues to be a part of the band they have always dreamed of playing in. The group breathes new life into sets containing a mix of danceable R&B, rock, funk, soul, popular music, swing, and jazz standards. A nod to their versatility, they are also capable of breaking down into a smaller jazz combo for quiet dinner or cocktail music. In an era of electronic, manufactured music and lackluster disc jockeys, the Chi-Town Showstoppers are a musical tour de force that will cause jaws to drop. Put on your dancing shoes, and prepare to be blown away!
