You know when certain songs come on and you can’t figure out who sings them – or what they're called, but, for some reason, you know all the words? The songs you forgot about? The songs you haven’t heard in years? The songs you know, but don’t know why you know them? 

We play those songs.

We're The Socially Acceptable Band — We're the cover band your mother warned you about.

We're 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 any given show. With 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!

Lasting over a decade in the limelight, these two bands have survived the noise of today's music by simultaneously popping out hit after and hit while remaining nostalgic forever. Fall Out Boy vs Panic! at the Disco battle it out in the pop-punk powerhouse live band tribute!

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
