MEDICINE BALL is a Chicago based rock band featuring JAN KING on guitar, TAMI PEDEN on drums, and KEITH WAKEFIELD on bass.
Jan King gets it done. Whether it’s flying in the face of a dismissive
boyfriend or acquaintance who didn’t take seriously her determination
to become the crackerjack guitar player she is – she put that
same determination to work to become an expert auto mechanic inspired
by the same kind of derisive dismissal – or to change the world
by teaching guitar and attitude to children, many of them economically
and otherwise challenged or disadvantaged, in and around the Chicago
area. She has all kinds of students but, also a former board member
for Girls Rock!
