These twenty-five famous musicians and bands are from Illinois.

History Of Music In Illinois

I understand that New York City and Los Angeles get all the attention when it comes to music. In reality, there is outstanding music throughout the world, especially in the United States.

When it comes to musicians and bands I would put Illinois up against anywhere else. There is a deep history of very talented players in the Land of Lincoln. Not just in Chicago but the whole state.

Plus, they cover many different styles and types of tunes. From the Blues to Heavy Metal to Hip Hop to Techno to Punk to Pop and much much more.
