You know the songs that come on and you can’t figure out who sings it, or what it’s called but for some reason you know all the words? The songs you forgot about? The song you haven’t heard in years? The song you know, but don’t know why you know it? 

We play those songs.

We are The Socially Acceptable Band — a 9-piece cover band from Chicago. We originated in a Champaign, IL frat house basement in 2013 and have been playing all around the Chicagoland area since 2015.

It’s not uncommon for a TSAB set to cover 6 decades and 10+ genres in a given show. With more than 250 songs (and counting) in our catalog, a Socially Acceptable show is guaranteed to have a little something for everyone.

Check out the rest of the site for photos/videos, background on the band, and upcoming shows - we'll catch you at the next one!

The Social Alcohol Band Live

Fitz's Spare Keys, 119 N York St., Elmhurst, IL

Hey everyone! How's 2017 going? Cool. Us too. Yeah, you're right, it hasn't been too exciting so far, but it beats 2016 am I right?!?!

Well strap in, because TSAB is about to put the sweet sweet sounds of Rock AND Roll (usually you gotta pay double for that kind of action) into your ear canals. We're coming back to our suburban roots to drink and dance and rock and sweat and dance and drink and rock.

If you've never seen TSAB, here's your chance. If you have seen TSAB, here's a high five. We play famous songs that you've heard, and liked, and in some cases, forgotten. So allow us to help you remember through song, allow the bartenders to quench your thirst, and allow yourself to convince yourself that dancing outrageously and drinking 14 whiskey gingers is both terrific and responsible.

We start around 9:00 pm. We want to see you there. ♥ TSAB
