About Us


The Wailin' Mahalias entertain from the heart. With a touch of soul. And the power to move audiences to their feet.

"The WAILIN' MAHALIAS are simply great in live performance-all smiles with lots of soul, as well as a bit of choreography. The musical repertoire is as infectious as the performance. This talented group is highly recommended." Lilli Kuzma, Host of "Folk Festival" on WDCB Public Radio (Chicagoland)

When the WAILIN' MAHALIAS perform, audiences are moved. The mix of music is energizing and uplifting. FOLK and GOSPEL come alive with dynamic new interpretations. Vocals soar in sync with skilled instrumentalists.

The band knows how to bring fresh excitement to any event. By striking all the right chords. Elevating mood. Raising the roof!

While many of its members honed their harmonies in the Lake Street Church of Evanston Choir, their music is universal. Inspired by a scope of artists from Joan Baez to Mahalia Jackson, the group covers its timeless arrangements in a stay-fresh package with no expiration date.
