I have some fun gigs coming up at Winter's Jazz Club. Winter's is Chicago's newest and best listening room, and I'll be there with some great groups.
This Labor Day Sunday I'll have a special quartet at Winter's as part of my bi-weekly "Andy Brown and Friends" series. We'll be featuring Russ Phillips on trombone, Dan DeLorenzo on bass and drummer Kevin Dorn. Kevin is an old friend visiting from NYC, and he's a fantastic swing drummer. No work on Monday, so come out and hang with us starting at 7:30pm.
September 8 I'll be there with one of my favorite bands, Petra's Recession Seven. This is a terrific seven piece swing band that features the terrific vocals of Petra van Nuis with several of Chicago's finest hornmen. Petra and the band were recently profiled in the Chicago Tribune and you don't want to miss it!
I'm excited to be finishing September at Winter's by doing a live recording with one of my favorite present-day singers Rebecca Kilgore. She's Portland based and will be in Chicago on September 28 and 29 to record at the club with myself, Russ Phillips on trombone and Portland bassist Tom Wakeling.
I never miss a chance to tell folks about Winter's. It's such a welcome addition to the Chicago jazz scene. Musicians and audiences love it. Hope to see you!
I'm lucky to have several great steady gigs at the moment:
Sundays - (every other Sunday) Trio at Winter's Jazz Club
Tuesdays - Solo guitar at Cellars Bar and Grill
Wednesdays - Andy Brown Quartet at Andy's Jazz Club
Thursdays - Solo guitar behind the bar at the Green Mill
