Chicago Loud 9

Conceived during what was supposed to be a one-off show at House of Blues Chicago, Chicago Loud 9 is a nine-piece (sometimes more) ensemble bringing you nothing short of high-intensity, genre-mashing, and energy-filled music and performances. Comprised of members of the vibrant Chicago music scene, Chicago Loud 9 (commonly abbreviated as cLOUD9) has proven to showcase a dynamic, horn-driven, foot-stomping performance at each live show. Chicago Loud 9 has appeared at a number of major venues across the city including: Reggie’s, Emporium, Chop Shop, Hard Rock Cafe, Lincoln Hall, Metro, and Navy Pier. Listed in Illinois Entertainer as one of the “Best Local Acts in Chicago”, and also featured as the house band on daytime talk shows Windy City Live on ABC-7, and The Jam on WCIU-26, Chicago Loud 9 is just getting started.

Chicago Loud 9 maintains a busy performance schedule, recently landing a residency at Rhyme or Reason in Wicker Park. Drawing from influences such as Earth, Wind, & Fire, Outkast, Bob Marley, The Roots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Beyoncé, Chicago Loud 9 is a unique blend of R&B, Rock, Hip Hop, Jazz, and Reggae that leaves the crowd feeling “they are left on cLOUD9!” Chicago Loud 9 has released 3 projects and is gearing up to release their 4th LP in the Summer of 2018.
