Promoting local recordings has been a mission at Val's halla since our beginnings almost 40 years ago. Since the days of homegrown 45's and LP's, we have welcomed and displayed the work of performers' self produced artistry.

With the advent of personal websites, it has become much easier for bands and individual musicians to expose their art to the general public, but there is nothing as satisfying as walking into your local record store and seeing your own CD on the shelf.

Come see our selection of Chicago area local artists and you too can "support local artists."
