Chicago 9 Rhythm & Blues Band
Formed from friendship and mutual musical respect the band has been playing regularly since 2002 and has become a firm favourite wherever they play.
Led from the front by skilled guitar and saxophone interplay all driven by a solid backbeat & superb vocals.
The band play their own arrangements of varied Blues classics & less obvious covers along with some good old school Rhythm & Blues with a touch of Rock’n’Roll for good measure so bring your ‘Dancing Shoes’
These guys feel privileged to have collectively or individually shared the stage & opened for Blues Greats
OTIS GRAND, MUD MORGANFIELD, STAN WEBB’S CHICKEN SHACK, ERIC SARDINAS & BIG MOTOR, MIKE VERNON & THE MIGHTY COMBO, SARI SCHORR & THE ENGINE ROOM, JW JONES, PAUL LAMB & THE KINGSNAKES also 70’s Rockers EDDIE & THE HOT RODS, DR FEELGOOD & NINE BELOW ZERO.

This latest review from Bryan Stan says it all
Chicago 9 is probably one of the best Rhythm and Blues bands in the South of England.
The lead guitarist is, without a doubt, unique and addicting to watch. His control and arrangement throughout each gig is inspiring.
The bass player is solid and unwavering with his fantastic and mellow walks up and down the fretboard.
The drummer complements the bassist without fault, and then there are the keyboards and saxophonists then expertly round up the musical masterpiece. They spontaneously groove each song along so well. Finally, there is the lead singer, whose melting tones make each piece her own. If you have never heard this band, I urge you to watch them live and see the crowd dance the night away. If you’re looking to book a band, then these guys should be on your list as they come with a following to fill your event.
