Jazz Consortium Big Band at Durty Nellie's in Palatine

Usually on the Second Sunday. In July, on the Third.

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.

    The band was outstanding. Durty Nellie's was a spacious facility with a balcony and with lots of room for spreading out and the food was very good. Also there was room to dance. I enjoyed the company of the meetup members who attended, but given the quality of the band and of the facility, more members should attend to hear this outstanding band at this location.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
