The band has been heard on over seven radio stations in Chicagoland with their hits “Stoplight”, “Better This Way” and “Sing”. They are also known for the famous “30 Songs in 30 Minutes” medley of songs from the 70’s and 80’s. 7th Heaven has been an entertainment staple for 30 years having played over 250 shows a year, with an average of 100 outdoor events.

The Gingers
The Gingers are a high-energy arsenal, filled with the greatest rock covers sprinkled with playful surprises. Their rough edge tackles traditionally testosterone-fueled tunes and is nicely bookended with plenty of layer-cake harmonies and melodic favorites that audiences know and love. Each of the front-line women of The Gingers, along with their rock solid “guy drummer”, have a road-tested performance history around the Chicago festival and club music scene. Their genuine love for fun is contagious!
