"FANTASTIC BAND"--Wendy Snyder of WGN radio 720 AM and The Loop 97.9 FM We will work directly with you to craft a one-of-a kind memorable experience! Whether you're hosting 5 people or 500 people, we will make sure that the music is outstanding and is perfect for the event. We are all full time music professionals. The majority of our shows are weddings, corporate private events and festivals. We understand pressure-filled situations and come through every time. We have recently been hired by the Chicago White Sox and the Shedd Aquarium to be the featured act for their 80s nights. We boast LIVE saxophone. We encourage requests and want our clients to have a direct say in what music is chosen for their event! We boast the BEST trained singers in Chicago. We do not play over pre-recorded tracks. We have females in prominent roles onstage. We offer an acoustic alternative of our band in case you have smaller space or budget requirements. We are family-friendly and do not perform songs with explicit language. We have an interactive fun stage show with 80s attire and stage props. We offer an 80s karaoke option as well as a DJ option. We DJ on all breaks so there is never dead air or a lag in energy at your event. We carry liability insurance! We have hundreds of dance songs from other decades available as well, if you want more than 80s music. We are happy to do a complimentary phone call to help answer any questions you may have prior to hiring!

Review by Peter J.

CelebrationReviewed on March 19, 2022From Momence, IL

Five stars are not enough to evaluate how good this group was for the people I serve! They provided a perfect ambience for an Irish dinner that we were holding in our community! I would recommend the Jolly Ringwalds and the Galway Girls in an instant!!! (They also we’re fast on their feet switching from Irish Folk Music to “Hound Dog” as soon as a basset hound came howling in the hall!!!)

The Jolly Ringwalds:

Thank you so much, Peter! You were a joy to work with and we can't wait to do it again!

PicnicReviewed on August 15, 2021From Vernon Hills, IL

The band was fantastic! Played music appealing to our entire audience of young kids to seniors. They were extremely kind, professional, and talented!

The Jolly Ringwalds:

Thank you, Jennifer! It was our pleasure to perform for such a loving community of churchgoers.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 18, 2018From Wauconda, IL

They were super easy to work with and great musicians. Super flexible - played as a band when people weren’t karaoking with them. Upbeat and talented musicians. They made my 80s themed party vision perfect!!!!!!!
