Chicago's Premier Janis Joplin Tribute Band

Laurie Blasing as Janis Joplin



About Cheap Thrills

CHEAP THRILLS is a 90 minute stage show.

You get the music of Janis Joplin just as she sang it and just as her fellow musicians played it!


Comments on our recent shows:


"Best Janis Joplin tribute band I have ever heard (standing ovation)."


"(From other bands)" We have played with several other Janis tribute bands, this one blows them all away."


"I waited for Summertime, expecting it to be like the many other times I have heard it covered...Laurie sang it JUST LIKE JANIS! "


"Felt like we had Janis back for the evening! Laurie's mannerisms on stage in addition to her spot-on singing really takes you back!"


"It was like going to see Janis Joplin live, which I have! The band was amazing and Laurie's stage performance and vocals...I mean, just WOW! I will be at every show I can get to!"


Ball and Chain is my favorite Janis tune. They nailed it from beginning to end! The entire band was amazing. It was like Janis was in the room with us. She comes out and talks with everyone before and after the show. Love that!"


We will see you in 2018 with our new show with even more JJ songs!
