Jazz Consortium Big Band at Durty Nellie's in Palatine

Top off your Mother's Day with some Big Band Jazz!

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.

    I happend to stop by since I live 3 minutes away, the last time I was at Dirty nellys was in the 70's. This is not the old Dirty nellys, its a new location and the band was fantastic, there was about 30 people there and was basically empty, but this band rocks, 17 piece band and the jazz was great. they come once a month there, I will be there next time for sure.

      Jerry - the place was packed during the high school performance and Jazz Consortium's first set. But, as you noted, lots of people left during the break.

    A wide-ranging playlist, 30's Big Band tunes up to Elton John songs, performed with precision and style! Outstanding (as usual).

    Thank you. My son is away in law school and may not even remember and that's ok. So it's really nice to have a greeting.
