Green Thirteen - The Fastest Rising Star in the Chicago Skyline

Green Thirteen has changed what people expect in a home in Chicago...around the country and abroad...for the past FOURTEEN years.  

The goal was simple - to build a group that would provide the high quality live music experience Chicago bands have become known for, to assemble a wide ranging and fun set list featuring only the biggest hits in music from classic to current artists, and to provide a level of service and professionalism that has never before been seen in the live music industry.  Music buyers nationwide took notice and flocked to Green Thirteen to provide musical entertainment for a variety of functions including corporate events, weddings, festivals, private events and night clubs.  Discover the Green Thirteen difference and make your next function an event to be remembered.  

Green Thirteen is you...AMPlified! 

Please take a moment to look over our many reviews on the Knot, Wedding Wire and many other third party review sites online to find out what you can expect from Green Thirteen on your event.  Here are a few common areas in which Green Thirteen gets consistent feedback:

In many cases, before a music buyer even hears a note or experiences a show from Green Thirteen, they call or email our office for more information.  That is really the first step in our relationship with a client and where we love to make our first great impression.  Clients are often pleasantly surprised to find a dedicated sales office with someone to take their call or receive an immediate email response to their inquiry.  And that just scratches the surface on how serious we take our business and your event.  Green Thirteen is fully corporately insured, accepts all forms of payment including most major credit cards and has a business office dedicated to organizing and planning all aspects of your event entertainment.
We learned early on that the band is the first place most event vendors go to find out the details of the schedule.  We embraced this opportunity to add to our service and took the responsibility seriously.  The moment you chose Green Thirteen as your entertainment we become your schedule planning partner and are here to help organize your thoughts and provide suggestions on how to best realize your vision.  We schedule a detailed planning session before your event and structure every minute of your timeline.  We also submit a written copy of the timeline for your pre-approval.  We provide copies of this timeline to every event vendor and work collaboratively with those vendors to execute your vision perfectly -or- work as a partner with any formal event planners you are currently working with.  In addition to the scheduling, we can handle all formal announcements and emcee responsibilities and also combine a full DJ service with every event to provide the perfect soundtrack for every second of your night.
Live Music Show:
That’s what you came to us for, and the feedback is unanimous...Green Thirteen really delivers!  The musicians in Green Thirteen have some of the best performance resumes around and use their experience to craft the perfect set for every event.  From classic favorites to current radio hits, Green Thirteen has mastered the performance of a very wide range of music so all of your guests can be a part of the party.  Green Thirteen works with you well in advance to discover your likes and dislikes and monitors the crowd to see what is working best throughout the night.  Their set is connected seamlessly without stops or pauses to guarantee an exciting and cohesive show at every event.  The most common observation of the Green Thirteen live music experience is “a young modern group that appeals to all ages”.
Choosing a band for your event is a highly personal decision.  The quality, professionalism and style is a reflection of you, your guests and/or your organization.  We are often flattered to hear that a client has been searching for the right group to fit their event and knew immediately that it was Green Thirteen when they found us.  In much of our promotional material we use the slogan, “Green Thirteen is YOU”.  What does that mean?  To us, it’s our way to let you know that we understand how important this is to you.  By you trusting us with the opportunity and responsibility to be a part of your event, it is equally important to us.  We know that when we hit the stage we are a reflection of you and nothing is more important to us than getting it right.
This is a very important area to take notice of and one that most first time live music buyers don’t understand the importance of.  The term “production” covers the technical end of what’s needed to provide live music - especially the sound system.  The wrong sound system can ruin the live music sound quality and listening comfort of your audience.  Green Thirteen worked tirelessly to build an intricate sound system containing high end “state of the art” components to best serve the needs of our clients in most venues.  We also travel with technicians who set up, monitor and optimize the sound system throughout the night to guarantee an energetic yet comfortable and pleasant sound for you and all your guests.  If your event requires more elaborate production, Green Thirteen has established relationships with some of the best and most professional contractors in the industry and can arrange the right system for any event, big or small.
