King. Catch this hall of fame group singing their classics such as There Goes My Baby, Under The Boardwalk, Up On The Roof, On Broadway and more. Click here for tickets.
The Blooze Brothers, Saturday, April 18, 2020
One of Chicagoland’s most in-demand show bands, the Blooze Brothers got their start 25 years ago and show no signs of stopping. They pay homage not only to the music made by the original Blues Brothers in movies, TV, and recordings, but they evoke the spirit of Aykroyd and Belushi. Their combination of some of Chicago’s top musicians and vocalists with their 1974 Dodge Monaco Bloozemobile replica makes The Blooze Brothers a can’t miss experience! Click here for tickets.
Brubeck Brothers Quartet, Saturday, April 25, 2020
Jazz legend Dave Brubeck would have celebrated his 100th birthday in 2020. To honor their father’s life and legacy, Dave’s sons Chris and Dan Brubeck, performers in their own right who performed and recorded with their father, host a multimedia show with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet. Joined by guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, this dynamic quartet will feature many of Dave Brubeck’s classic tunes, as well as a few surprises too! Click here for tickets.
