Jennifer Jennings Awards and Reviews

The Jennifer Jennings Band is one of the hottest and most promising modern country bands in Chicago. Yes, that’s right, country from Chicago. The Windy City, while being known as the Home Of The Blues, also has a long tradition of country music, which at times gets overlooked. Jennifer Jennings and her band represent the newer style of pop and rock-influenced country, drawing their inspiration as much from songwriters like Tom Petty and Sheryl Crow as from anything coming out of Nashville. The result is music that combines the story-telling type of songwriting of Americana with a sound based in the classic rock that we all love that seems fresh, new, and familiar at the same time. The band’s debut CD All The Pieces gives ample evidence of the success of this musical pairing and Jennifer and company are eager to spread their word across the Midwest. Jennifer Jennings and her clear, pure alto vocals are familiar to many audiences in Chicago and beyond. From her days fronting the band Burnt Toast to singing sessions for other artists including Mr. Meyers and Dave Barrett to working as a singer of radio jingles, Jennings has been a constant presence on the Chicago music scene. She has performed in venues like Wrigley Field, The Cubby Bear, Durty Nellie’s, Taste of Chicago, Navy Pier, and countless others clubs and festivals. The musicians in her band are equally visible and experienced and make up the perfect unit to back Jennifer on the concert stage. The band members (guitarist Michael Kranicke, bassist James DiGiralamo, keyboardist Rick Ariail, and drummer Greg Campbell) have all worked with many notable Midwestern and national acts including Nick Moss & The Flip Tops, Big Guitars From Memphis, Steve Smith (Journey), Peaches and Herb, and The Voodoo Kings and pack all the musical muscle needed for this new endeavor.

The Jennifer Jennings Band has been described as "The Allman Brothers meets Sheryl Crow".

The Jennifer Jennings Band is the perfect choice for any venue, concert, or fest seeking great songs (both original and cover), outstanding musicianship, and an engaging and entertaining live performance. Book them for an event and discover for yourself why savvy talent buyers have them back again and again.

The Jennifer Jennings Band has been described as "The Allman Brothers meets Sheryl Crow". Jennifer has a phenomenal voice, harkening back to the great female rock artists of the 60's and 70's. She has a clear, rich, alto voice of uncommon quality - versatile enough to be equally at home singing a driving rock tune as well as a soulful ballad. Whether covering another artist's song or playing one of their own, The Jennifer Jennings Band has an original sound that will pull you in and keep you there. Singer/songwriter Jennifer Jennings (formerly Jennifer Onesto) was one of the founding members of Burnt Toast and they went on to perform together until the mid-1990s playing many Chicagoland clubs including Durty Nellie’s, The Cubby Bear, local festivals and playing before Cubs games at Wrigley Field. In 1996, The Jennifer Onesto Band came together for Jennifer’s debut CD Twenty Houses. Jennifer won a music contest courtesy of 101.9FM "The Mix" in Chicago. Such exposure proved golden for her. That summer she participated in the city's largest outdoor music festival, "The Taste of Chicago." Gigs with Dave Barrett and his band The Big Babies soon followed with frequent gigs at Navy Pier. Recently, Jennifer and her friends James DiGirolamo, Michael Kranicke, Rick Ariail and Greg Campbell formed the Jennifer Jennings Band.

Jennifer Jennings Awards and Reviews

Rock Forge Arts - Read the review of Jennifer's music, who is February's featured artist, where they write:

"...Fortunately enough the internet uncovered this Chicago talent for us and we could not have enjoyed the find more. The real shocker was the music. It was fresh, crisp, and clear. Grounded by a lost four on the floor band sound that only emerges in clubs now days and lead by a strong guitar with hypnotizing hooks. It has a genuine listening pleasure with incredible lyrics and a sound we have trouble classifying because it is so original....Rarely does a musical artist arrive on the scene with a sound so original that could be considered timeless. With how rapidly the market travels, bands come and go only to grab a few loyal fans to honor them for years to come. After listening to just two recordings, we were hooked. Jennings is here to stay...Jennings combines fantastic melodies and harmonies with a flawless soulful accompaniment. It exceeded our expectations..."
