DIANA & THE DISHES at Montrose Saloon
Tuesday, February 12, 2019; 8-11 pm; NO COVER
Garnering comparisons to Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Carole King, and Cole Porter, Chicago band DIANA & THE DISHES present a unique, high-energy recipe of pop, soul, wit, tight musicianship and contagious fun.
Since forming in 2008 around singer/songwriter/pianist, Diana Lawrence, the band has taken their city by storm, playing reputable rock venues such as the Schubas, Martyrs, Double Door and Subterranean, while also becoming favorites at listening rooms and creative events, including The Paper Machete and the Uptown Poetry Slam at The Green Mill. Throughout 2015 and 2016, the Diana & the Dishes played a monthly residency at the High Hat Club, a boutique music and comedy club on Chicago’s north side. The band’s debut release, “Take A Picture,” was listed in Music Connection Magazine’s Hot 100 for 2011, and a new album is currently in production.
