Chico Bands

A list of bands in Chico California that are currently playing.

Two different list now.

I redid the categories for this list as to help bands that I am in contact with mostly. Some people might disagree with how I categorize and/or lump people into a group. I’m up for suggestion so let me know.

Thanks.
