The Pete Ellman Big Band at FitzGerald's (Jim P Z)

"Hardest Working Big Band in the Chicagoland Area"

Feel the power of a traditional 17-piece Big Band!

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.

$10. Not a late night - Music ends at 9:30.

Really a concert, but if you just can't resist, there's a tiny space for dancing.

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 food or snacks.

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