New Album Coming Soon

We went back into the studio earlier this month Funded in Part by Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and have almost completed recording! The album, "Lost Lyrics" is due out Winter 2017. We've got a lot to share with you in the very near future, so check in soon for updates. In the meantime here are some photos taken by Bob Kucera: 

New Residency

We will be starting a brand new residency at Larry's Bar located in the Lawrence House at 1020 W Lawrence Ave. This beautiful art deco building will be a great setting for all of the new music we have coming your way. Just like our Monday night residency at Rogers Park Social, each week will feature a different horn player and we'll have new tunes to share on the regular. Stop by and see us Sunday nights from 8-11pm!

 

This week we'll be featuring:

Christy Bennett vocals
Don Stille accordion
Tim Fitzgerald guitar
Anton Hatwich bass

Back in the studio!

We received an IAP grant from Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events for our next album and we'll be heading into the studio next week! We're very excited to be working with engineer Anthony Gravino at Shirk Studios again. Stay tuned for updates! 

CD Release at Winter's Jazz Club

Mark your calendars! We'll be playing our CD Release Party for Live at Rogers Park Social Saturday, June 17th! This will be a great night to hear the album in it's entirety in a listening room setting. Winter's is quickly becoming a favorite venue in the city for those interested in hearing great jazz in a sophisticated room.
