About
Chicago Classic Rock - Rhythm & Blues Cover Band

When The Stingers play, audiences respond. With solid vocals and peerless musicianship, this Chicago-based group plays a tasty crowd-pleasing blend of Classic Rock, 60's-style pop, gritty soul and R&B. They play a lot of familiar covers with just the right amount of lesser-known treasures while putting a distinctive Stingers stamp on it all. It's a musical mix that keeps club, festival and private party audiences wondering what they're going to pull out of their collective hats next.

When you hire the Stingers for a gig you will be getting a professional performance by seasoned musicians that have been playing throughout the city of Chicago and surrounding areas for years.
They take care to accommodate the clients needs by asking the right questions to make sure that your event will be a success. Whether it's a performance at a pub, a small backyard party, corporate event, or a larger outdoor festival they give the same....100%.

The Stingers will personally follow up to ask you about specific details that many Bands do not even consider. Their knowledge of the music combined with your knowledge of your event will insure success!

Please consider the stingers for your next event.

The Stingers were fantastic to work with for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's largest fundraiser, Light The Night. This was an outdoor event with approximately 5,000 participants. We heard nothing but great feedback on the music and energy from our participants. The coordination of details for the event was seamless. Very easy to work with, super friendly yet professional. This was our first time working with The Stingers but will, without a doubt, ask them to play at our events in the future. I would highly recommend!

The Stingers are awesome! They played a great set at the beginning of our wedding reception and they got the party started! Rick is extremely professional and worked closely with us to craft the exact evening we had in mind. The whole group is incredibly talented, and I am still getting compliments a month later on how great they were. I highly recommend the Stingers and I wish I had another big party coming up so that we could hire them again!

This was my first time using gigmasters. And I have to say. I definitely found the band I was looking for to perform @ My 50th B-Day Party. Aside from all of the dancing all I heard from the guest was. How great The Stringers sounded & where did I find them. They put the cherry on-top. I will definitely hire The Stringers again if I need a band. And would do nothing but recommend anyone who is looking for a band to not worry. You won’t be disappointed. Rick does not disappoint from start to finish.
