The Pete Ellman Big Band
Hardest Workin' Big Band in the Chicagoland area!
Hear and feel the power of a traditional 17-piece Big Band. A regular feature (and monthly Meetup) at Mullen's in Lisle, the Pete Ellman Big Band rocks with the classic Big Band Jazz setup of five saxes, four trombones, four trumpets, and a swinging rhythm section.
Listed on several Meetups!
$10 Cover - Pay at the door. 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.
