Band Bio

The Ethan Bell Band is what happens when retro-pop and country music bump boots in the back of the honky tonk. With bar bashing, boy band belting, flashy stage move dancing, and story telling that your grandma would pass out candy for, Ethan Bell, Eric Smith, Brandon Weber and Jonny Gifford have become known as one of the hardest working bands in the Chicagoland area.

They keep audiences captivated with their mashups of pop, hip hop and country songs that you love from your radio, while swooning you with their romantic ballads and introspective songwriting. They bring a Nashville flavor to Chicago that keeps them busy all year round playing 150 plus shows a year at casinos, bars, music venues, corporate events, weddings and divorces.

The band is currently making trips back and forth from Nashville, Tennessee as they prepare to put out their next batch of songs in 2019, while also grinding away playing anything, anywhere for anyone just to keep the lights on. Whether you’re a fan of their music or just a fan of a damn good time, The Ethan Bell Band puts on a performance that leaves you wanting more.
