Boo Baby is a Chicago Musical Act looking, above all, to entertain. One review has described their shows "a meditation on joy" and their lyrics as being "like a more vibrant Sun Kil Moon." Founders Kevin Tellie and Robert Salazar share a back-of-the-bus wit and musical interplay that comes from playing together for 10+ years. the recent addition of experimental artist Thomas Huston has indeed added more experimental artistry.

Discovering their live show feels like stumbling on a mom and pop gas station; friendly faces happy to get your motor runnin'. In its nearly 6 year history, Boo Baby has opened for acts such as whitney, karl blau, TJ & Dave, Friendship, and David Liebe Hart (tim & Eric). they have held a residency at the io theater and released their debut album Orange You Glad via hickory Lane Records.

Hold your applause, please “boo.”
