Big Band Sunday at FitzGerald's - The Chicago Grandstand Big Band

Not a hosted Meetup - Listed for your listening pleasure.

One of FitzGerald's outstanding Big Band Sunday bands.

Chicago Grandstand Big Band has been an integral part of Chicago's entertainment community for over 30 years. They have performed all over the Chicagoland area, including Joe Segal's Jazz Showcase, FitzGerald's, Grant Park Summer Dance, and numerous street fairs. The band has been featured on WTTW's Wild Chicago and for many years, CGBB was the featured band at O'Hare Marriott's New Years Eve Ball.

Members of the group have performed with the Count Basie, Maynard Ferguson, Tommy Dorsey, Les Elgart and Duke Ellington orchestras. Featured vocalist is Julie Ann Caselli.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

$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.
