A little about who we are

Having met in graduate school, Rachel and Jori discovered they both shared a love for music, as Rachel plays the guitar and Jori plays the piano. By chance, they were asked to play a fundraiser together, as a duo, only one month after knowing each other … and the rest is history. Since then, Rachel and Jori have landed steady gigs all across the northwest suburbs of Chicago. They both enjoy many types of genres of music and as a result, they cover a variety of songs from as early as the 1960s through the present and their setlist is continually changing and evolving. For more than ten years, they have performed for restaurants, wine bars, cafes, fundraisers, weddings, and anniversary, graduation, and holiday parties, as well as other private events.

In a world where many forms of entertainment continue to be replaced by modern technology, Rachel and Jori feel live music adds a unique element that will make your event unforgettable.

They want to share their love of music with you! Come hear them play or book them today!
