About Us

The Business is a sensational horn band that was formed over 10 years ago by a group of long-time friends that had played in several professional bands and orchestras. A proud reflection of the vast cultural faces of Chicago, many groups are represented by the individual musicians and music they perform. From Frank Sinatra to James Brown, Michael Bublé to the Ohio Players, Aretha to Gloria Estéfan, and a sampling of their own original music, they truly play music for all to enjoy!

The Business plays with passion, feeling, and showmanship and most importantly they have fun doing it. Their on stage energy and dance moves are the envy of every band in Chicago…and when they dance…you dance! There is no better way to enjoy an evening.

The Business is truly an experience that must be seen to really be heard.

Since its inception, The Business has entertained at such venues as the United Center, The House of Blues, Rosemont Convention Center, the Skyline Stage at Navy Pier, The Field Museum, Union Station, The Shedd Aquarium, the Taste of Chicago and most every other location in Chicago!

The Business has performed at weddings, private parties, clubs, stadiums, corporate functions, and charity events. They have opened for numerous national acts, and have performed for such dignitaries as Vice President Al Gore, Governor Rod Blagojevich, and Mayor Richard Daley at events such as The National Conference of Mayors and The Democratic National Convention. They have also performed at functions hosted by such prestigious companies as Microsoft & McDonalds.

This year, we had the distinct pleasure of performing at the Wish Ball 2007 for the Make-A-Wish foundation, for the City of Chicago's Summer Dance…on the Move at the Humboldt Park Boathouse, and at the 14th Annual Green Tie Ball.

We invite you to get to know The Business a little better. Please visit our website or feel to contact us at any time.
