NORTHSIDE has been rocking the Chicagoland circuit for over a decade.
Northside is a 5 member Rock n Roll tribute band based out of Chicago, covering music from the 1970's through present day. Northside honors bands ranging from classic rock's Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones, as well as modern and alternative rock greats such as Nirvana, No Doubt and U2 as well as a montage of dance songs ranging from the 70's to present day.
In 2003, drummer Chris Stamos, bassist Bob Spilios and guitarist Louie Kritikos reunited their band. They now have been playing together for over two decades. They recruited singer and keyboardist Rebecca Bolluyt and Northside Band was born. George Skoubis reunited with the band contributing with some guitar, keyboards and back-up vocals completing Northside’s current line-up and sound.
Four of the 5 members were born and grew up together on the Northside of Chicago. It is evident by watching them perform live, that Northside is just 5 great friends having a blast performing music together. This attitude and kinship is always sensed by the audiences and has a way of creating a “good times for all” mood for anyone at the show.
Northside has gig’d at such Chicagoland venues as The Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville, Captian Morgans Club at Wrigley Field, The Beat Kitchen, 27 Live in Evanston, Blarney Island on The Fox River & Abbey Pub in Chicago as well as The Summer on Southport fest, Taste of Lincoln Ave fest., Taste of Lakeview fest, Andersonville Midsumma Fest, Retro on Roscoe, Edison Park Fest and was the head liner at the Ignite Fest '11 & '12. .
