Church Booty dreams big. Withlively performances that feel more like parties and a sound drawing from just about every inch of pop, rock and R&B, it’s go big or go home for Church Booty.

R&B. Soul. Funk. Jazz. Jams. With catchy melodies and grooves that can’t help but be danced to, Church Booty delivers a musical experience born from their wide range of influences. Starting out with countless shows in their college home of Champaign-Urbana, the band has brought their unique blend of genres to Chicago, entertaining crowds with high-energy performances.  Guided by tight arrangements and spontaneous improvisations, the bar is set at a high musical standard that works both the brain and the booty. 

Unified just as much by their friendship, Church Booty truly is a family of musicians. Between the vocals of Mariel Fechik, the keyboard connection between Joe Meland and Rob Osiol, Noah Gehrmann's guitar shredding, the groove between bassist Erik Opland and drummer Tom Kelly, or the tight horn arrangements laid down by Dan Hinze (saxophone) and company, each member comes together for a whole greater than the sum of its parts.
