What is FAB?

FAB is a Chicago-based group supporting Female Artists and Bands, regardless of genre. The focus is on mentorship, knowledge sharing, and promotion of local talent. Open to all female artists and bands(at least one female fronting the group), as well as their supporters (i.e. managers, agents, venue owners, radio promoters, music journalists).

  • Meetings: discuss and plan FAB events, and more importantly, participate in music related discussions, learn from others, sharing success and horror stories.
  • Education & Networking: currently, members network via online discussion group, and participation in meetings & showcase. Future plans include educational workshops. 
  • Showcase & Promote: create opportunities for female artists and bands to work together collectively to promote the talent and diversity of the Chicago music scene. Future plans to incorporate a CD compilation project sponsoring local charities, a focus on giving back to the community.
