The governor of Illinois has issued a "stay home order" in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, effective 5 pm on March 21st, 2020, until April 7th, 2020.

All of our appearances during that period are cancelled.  

As the situation evolves in the coming weeks, BreakAway will make future appearance decisions based on the guidance of the CDC, IDPH, and other federal and state officials as appropriate to ensure the health and safety of our band members, fans and the general public.  This means that future events on our calendar must be considered tentative.  For those events which are not yet cancelled, we will coordinate with event organizers at least a week in advance to review current circumstances and the availability of the band members.

Stay safe and healthy, and we hope to see you soon!

Appearances and Events

While we prefer to perform covers of great favorite songs, we did produce an original single years ago, "Calm Before the Storm."  

It's still available for download at a number of fine music sites, including CD baby and iTunes:
