A little Zep, a little Rush, mix in some Adele and the Stones and turn up the heat – you get High Street. The power blues-rock quintet is based on Chicago’s north shore and formed in an attic rehearsal space in the fall of 2007. Launching as a cover band playing parties and charity events, this hard working young group introduced the world to their original sound with the release of their first EP “Out of the Attic” in spring 2011. Fully recorded on analog tape, they explored a range of different influences and delivered a raw powerful punch reminding us that rock is alive and well. Their highly anticipated follow up EP “Nocturnal” is set for release in the spring 2012 and have several gigs lined up in the Spring and Summer.

High Street is featured in the December issue of Illinois Entertainer.
Remember when turning 21 meant finally acquiring access to clubs and bars to see live music? Things have changed as more venues host 18-and-over gigs or all-ages shows and with young local talent like Purple Apple, The Rift, and Spencer Tweedy’s (yeah, he’s sired by you-know-who) The Blisters spilling forth tunes more sophisticated than the average high school talent show lineup. Joining that list is High Street, a collective [...]

Winnetka teens High Street may range in ages from 13-15, but the quintet unveils plenty of old soul on their second EP Nocturnal, of which the band is celebrating the release tonight. Upon first listen of Nocturnal it is very apparent that High Street are quick studies of classic rock legends Led Zeppelin and Rush. The EP’s title track in particular mirrors the work of those hard rocking legends with wall-to-wall rusty blues riffs, well-executed solos and plenty of Midwestern twang. These kids [...]

When you see the five members of the local teen band, High Street, standing on stage — all well-coiffed and confident, looking ready for a cameo at next year’s Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards — there’s a temptation to write them off as yet another bubble-gum teeny-bopper kid’s band.
Which teen idol, you wonder, are they going to imitate? Justin Bieber? Selena Gomez? One Direction? Or dare it be even written? Those Hanson kids from the ’90s?
