3rd Wednesday Big Band Night at Fitzgerald's - Jazz Consortium BB

Come enjoy this outstanding Big Band at FitzGerald's 3rd Wednesday Big Band Night!

That sound! The irresistible sound of soaring trumpets, robust trombones, wailing saxophones and swinging rhythm section…the sound of the Jazz Consortium Big Band. The Jazz Consortium Big Band is a swinging, rocking, roaring 17-piece Chicago big band that celebrates the best Swing and Jazz-Rock big band music.

Led by saxophonist Roy Vombrack, this Chicago area big band plays a variety of Jazz, Swing and Jazz-Rock music that appeals to all ages. The Jazz Consortium Big Band performs at Durty Nellie's in Palatine every month (second Sunday).

$10. Big Band Jazz music is not the same as Dance Band music. Big Band Jazz involves familiar tunes but includes extended solos wherein these talented musicians get to show off a little for the crowd (and for their fellow band members). Intended primarily as a concert performance, there's limited space for dancing (some folks can't resist).

FitzGerald's does not serve food (not even pretzels!), but you can dine before the show next door at Capri Ristorante or bring your own snacks into FitzGerald's.

Check out the extensive monthly schedule of music and entertainment at FitzGerald's.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
