Chicago-based band The Joans, formed in 2007, are a pop band that combine elements of old school new wave, glam, and electronic dance grooves to form their own unique sound. They have appeared live throughout Chicago including Chicago Pridefest and Halsted Market Days, among others and were honored to play the legendary Folsum Street Fair (San Francisco) and to open for Natasha Bedingfield, Cyndi Lauper and Joan Rivers at Milwaukee Pridefest 2008-2010.
The Joans were voted favorite rock band by Chicago Free Press readers in 2009 and were named best debut CD by Windy City Times. Their video Mad at the Dirt has appeared on NewNowNext and The Click List on the Logo Network and caught the attention of gay music icon Boy George who called The Joans "brilliant". They recently produced their 2nd video, Joan Crawford Goes to Hell, and are working on new material for a future online release. We Are The Joans, their debut CD, was released in September 2009.
The Patty Elvis Band
Inspired by comedian Andy Kaufman, Patty started impersonating Elvis many years ago. The Patty Elvis show incorporates Elvis, comedy and hits from various artists of the 70s. The audience is captured by her sound-alike Elvis voice, stage presence and quick wit. Patty Elvis is not just a female Elvis impersonator but a professional entertainer who borrows from Elvis' legend. Patty Elvis has been featured on Chicagoland Television WTTW, CLTV News, Fox 32 News, WGN TV, and Mancow Radio. Patty Elvis has also been featured in various magazines around the Chicagoland area and on the back cover of the Chicago Tribune Magazine.
Some of Chicago's most respected original bands saw the beckoning light of Planet Claire and morphed into Chicago's best, perhaps only, B-52's tribute band. Taking their name from the lead track of the B-52s eponymous 1979 record, Planet Claire includes members of The Delafields, The Webstirs, B1g T1me, and many others. Altogether they bring you the best B-52s concert outside of Athens, Georgia circa 1980. Spot on musicianship and energetic showmanship lift this tribute band beyond the ordinary and into a full out Love Shack experience!
The Puterbaugh Sisters
It's hard to pinpoint the kind of art that they do, but if you take a firm look at both of their bangs, you will see that they do some kind of art. If you want to see them, just set some whiskey and a cup of glitter out on your porch in good weather and they will appear and perform. The Puterbaugh Sisters will revolutionize. Yes, they are actually sisters. They are a modern day vaudevillian spectacle act that combines exaggerated characters, music, jokes and costumes. Their mission is to combine various artistic media and styles of entertainment to display their own brand of comedy.
