Final Say

Final Say


Final Say was formed in 2007 and is owned and operated by the members of the band Maggie Speaks. Playing over 170 shows a year for the past 9 years, Maggie Speaks found that their demand in the private, corporate, festival and nightclub market far exceeded their availability. In 2006, the members of Maggie Speaks created Spoken Four under the Maggie Speaks umbrella to satisfy this demand, only to realize the demand didn’t stop there. With over 300 shows on the books for Maggie Speaks and Spoken Four in 2007, the members of Maggie Speaks are at it again. The response and continuing increase in demand for both Maggie Speaks and Spoken Four made it an easy decision to introduce Final Say, the latest addition to the Maggie Speaks family, to the public for the 2007-08 season.

Final Say is comprised of four of Chicago’s top musicians. The band was designed to completely mirror Maggie Speaks’ stage show, musical repertoire, energy and look. Final Say delivers their performance with the same impeccable customer service that has become a trademark of Maggie Speaks in the music industry.

For years, no other band was able to recreate the full rich sound, tight grooves, seamless harmonies, non-stop high energy shows and unmatched professionalism that Maggie Speaks delivered to their clients. Now with the advent of Final Say, clients have another great option to deliver a musical repertoire that extends from the beginning of rock & roll, through today’s hit music. Whether it is alternative, classic rock, soul, Motown, New Wave, Big Hair Rock, R&B, the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s. Final Say delivers the right music for any occasion. Let Final Say make your next event a hit!
