The Whiskey Hollow Bluegrass Band has been playing around the Chicago area for over 15 years, delighting audiences by ending our sets on time. We have played hundreds and hundreds of weddings, parties, square dances, holiday events, festivals, and one briss, but no one really wants to talk about that. Though we did get a tip.

We have had regular engagements at local watering holes over the years but it's been thin lately.  We are available for any event you need us for, in any configuration, from two to seven people in the band.

We play traditional bluegrass, old time country, the occasional pop or swing tune mixed in and a few novelty numbers.

Email me to hire us for any event.

Here's a bunch of snazzy photos!
