The Fox Valley area of Illinois is rich in music … from the historical foundation built in the 1930’s via the Sky Club in Aurora, to the Hemens Cultural Center in Elgin and the Paramount Theater and RiverEdge Park groups in Aurora of today, the Fox Valley boasts a vast array of music and arts communities involving nearly every form of music known to mankind.

Blues, Metal, Classical, Gospel, Rock & Roll … it’s all here in some form, shape or fashion. Artists, venues, organizations, retailers and enthusiasts of all kind are scattered throughout the Fox Valley area. The history of some dates back to the Roaring Twenties while some are brand spanking new.
