    I must confess, I'm not a big blues fan, but this concert was awesome. The energy and the talent of the band, led by Smiley Tillman, and the women singing the blues has given me a new appreciation for the blues.

    Hi, This is my first event with this group as well! I was already planning to attend this event with a few friends from another meetup group(Enjoy Life Chicago), mainly because Smiley Tillmon is my dad ;D. I will be in the lobby wearing a Meetup nametag that says "Robin T" from 7p-7:45p, hopefully having cocktail with Pierre. Look forward to meeting everyone, and maybe I can introduce you to Smiley Tillmon and Felicia Fields after the show.

    Hi everyone! My name is Marsha and this will be my very first meetup event and I am so excited to share my love of jazz with all you jazz lovers. Give me some Miles, Diane Krall, Coltrane, Ella, Monk, Cassandra Wilson, the Marsalis brothers (all of them!), and Basie! I could go on and on, but I won't. lol I look forward to seeing all of you at Women Sings the Blues on Friday and having a really good time. And by the way, I am a single professional living in the south suburbs of Chicago and would love to meet more interesting, friendly people.
