The BandAroke Story

Unique Live Music Entertainment
Let's make some music together.

Everyone remembers rocking out with their microphone/hairbrush in front of the mirror when they were young (or even recently!), your favorite song playing loudly and hoping nobody walks in on you.

Or maybe an air guitar solo from Stairway to Heaven with the broom.

Now that you’re all grown up, it’s time to take your passions out on stage with Bandaroke; Live Band Karaoke.

Bandaroke is Chicago’s Best Live Karaoke Band.

I came to the BandAroke idea as a way to get on stage and bring something unique and inviting to the crowd. What would be better then actually letting the crowd be the show?
