Pete Ellman Big Band at Mullen's in Lisle

18 of us had a blast in October, so let's make it a monthly event!

Hear and feel the power of a traditional 17-piece Big Band from 8-10pm at Mullen's in Lisle. A regular feature at Mullen's (every Thursday evening), the Pete Ellman Big Band blows the roof off with the classic Big Band Jazz setup of five saxes, four trombones, four trumpets, and a swinging rhythm section. Really a concert, but if you just can't resist, there's a tiny space for dancing. FREE. Good food and drink.

Try to get there on time, there's always a big crowd. Pete's band is usually preceded by a local high school jazz band (and a BIG crowd with all the parents and their video cameras!). The kids play from 7 to 8. Let's meet in the foyer at 7:30 and grab some tables at 8.

Listed on several Meetups!

      Julia- Unfortunately, the Big Band overflows Mullen's small stage so there's very little room for dancing (though some Swing Dancing is done). -Jim
