Hailing from the Second City, Chicago Loud 9 (cLOUD9) knows how to bring the Funk. The band blends an evolution of Hip Hop, Rock, and R&B. They have a sound that is indicative of their Windy City Roots that includes influences that span from Buddy Guy to Chance The Rapper. The Groups eclectic collection of musicians allows them to incorporate numerous arrangements and styles simultaneously: An Emcee, Female Vocalist, Drums, Keys, Cellist, Bass, Guitarist, and a Horn section with Saxophone and Trumpet.

For their Debut Album the “cLOUD9 LP” played historic Chicago Venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock Café, Double Door, Lincoln Hall, and Subterranean to name a few. With their Follow up EP released this summer “Just Once”at Cubby Bear Wrigleyville, they have rocked crowds at SOHO Music Festival, Poonaroo, Oakwood Music Festival, and Taste of Lincoln etc. The atmosphere and energy of these crowds add to the Essence of a Chicago Loud 9 performance.


The Group has shared stages with Midwest Hype, Rhymefest, Sidewalk Chalk, Simon Sed, Audiodacity, Blaise B, and Cofressi, Ces Cru, amongst a host of others.
