Get to Know the Band
Adrienne - Lead Singer
Adrienne's singing “career” began when she was a young girl, age 8, when she recorded her first unofficial track, Cher’s “Half Breed,” into an antiquated tape recorder. In high school, Adrienne attempted to form a group with a fellow classmate, but that project never came to fruition. It was at that point, Adrienne decided she wanted to become an attorney and studied pre-law. After graduation, she began working an Assistant State’s Attorney for Cook County. During her 30 year career, Adrienne didn’t find much time to pursue musical adventures. However, at the end of her legal career, Adrienne joined a rock band and began performing on the weekends as a backup singer. She eventually went on to perform as a lead singer for various rock, funk, and blues bands, including Arena, Deja Groove, and Playhouse. After joining up with a fellow musician in Rockford, Illinois, Adrienne became the lead singer for Fast Lane.
