It’s time to get wild with Chicago Rocker Magazine’s BEST NEW BAND of 2011…WILDCHILD!
Are they a rock band? Are they a party band? Well…yes! Sure, WILDCHILD plays all of your favorite guitar-rock anthems by bands such as Kiss, Bon Jovi and Guns N’ Roses…but it’s their hard-rocking, high-energy renditions of songs by artists as diverse as Kings of Leon, The Beastie Boys, The Killers, Usher and more that make them a true stand-out in the Chicago music scene.
Formed in late 2009, WILDCHILD is made up of Brian Little (guitar), Lenny Vertucci (guitar), Brad Dettmer (drums), Mark Konzen (bass) and the winner of the 2011 Chicago Rocker’s HOTTEST MALE LEAD VOCALIST AWARD, Jimmy Libera. The chemistry among the group is obvious – they love what they do and their fans love them for it.
WILDCHILD knows how to work their audience with a stage presence that can only be described as infectious. The crowd is usually singing the lyrics back to the band so loudly that Jimmy could take a break…not that you could get him off the stage! These high-energy performances combined with their ever-expanding set list and legions of loyal fans make for nights filled with endless fist-pumping, dancing and drinking until the last amp is unplugged.
So the only thing left to say is…are YOU ready to get WILD?
