About This Show
Diana & the Dishes is turning 10 and releasing new music! You can always count on this Chicago band to cook up a tasty combo of the soulful, the thoughtful and the danceable.
Garnering comparisons to Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Carole King, and Cole Porter, Chicago band DIANA & THE DISHES presents a unique, high-energy recipe of pop, soul, wit, tight musicianship and contagious fun. Since forming in 2008 around singer/songwriter/pianist, Diana Lawrence, the band has rocked legendary local venues such as the Schubas and Martyrs, opened for touring acts like Becca Stevens, and becoming favorites at unique cross-genre events, including The Paper Machete, the Uptown Poetry Slam at The Green Mill, and Chicago Public Radio’s New Year’s Party. Throughout 2015 and 2016, the Diana & the Dishes played a monthly residency at the High Hat Club, a boutique music and comedy club on Chicago’s north side. The band’s debut release, “Take A Picture,” was listed in Music Connection Magazine’s Hot 100 for 2011, and are excited to be releasing new music this year.
