Lonnie Brooks 80th Birthday Bash with Master of Ceremonies: Dan Aykroyd

Hi Jazz Fans,

For those of you Jazz fans who might like the Blues too, join the Chicago Blues Community to celebrate the 80th Birthday of Blues Hall of Fame member Lonnie Brooks at Chicago's House of Blues. The Brooks family personally invited the Blues and Jazz meetup groups to attend this great event so let's have a great turnout.

The show will be hosted by (Blues Brother) Dan Aykroyd.  Lonnie will be honored with performances by his two sons, Ronnie Baker Brooks and Wayne Baker Brooks, Big Head Todd, Jimmy Vivino and many other very special guests.  This is a show not to be missed!!! 

Tickets are general admission and are on sale now.  Tickets are $27.50 and can be purchased by clicking here.  You can also buy tickets at the door for $30.00. Note: there are few seats at the HOB.  Most attendees will have to stand.

Here are the details:

    Going to be a fantastic show! One not to miss! Pierre, correct me if I am wrong about the House of Blues: Although you will love the shows, (and that's a fact), Please remember as you arrive, most all attendees will be standing for the duration of the entire show. Not a problem for most, but worth mentioning. I truly hope I can make it!!!

      John, you are correct. I will actually add that caveat to the announcement. Thanks for the reminder.
