Hi everyone, we have a couple of noteworthy gigs this upcoming Monday evening!

We're playing from 7:30 - 8:30 at the Elbow Room, 2871 N. Lincoln Ave. I't's a $15 cover but includes free drinks & food, this is the annual fundraising party for the Red Orchid Theater, and it was a blast last year!

The we bolt out the door to head over to the legendary Green Mill, 4802 N. Broadway Ave., from 9:00 - 1:00 p.m.

This is fantastic, as the Green Mill is generally considered the top of the "top tier" of Chicago's historic jazz clubs - it was the place to be back in the day, and is famous for having underground tunnels going blocks away from the venue, used by Capone & the like during the Prohibition speak-easy days. So this is definitely a "break through" kind of place, hopefully the show will go well & we can raise the visibility of this great music a few notches!
