Pete Ellman Big Band at Mullen's in Lisle - FREE

RESCHEDULED DUE TO SNOWSTORM!

The hardest workin' Big Band in Chicagoland!

This Meetup repeats on the first Thursday of the month, but you can hear the PEBB every Thursday night from 8-10pm!

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, 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 7:45. Let's meet in the foyer at 7:30 and try to grab some tables at 7:45. NOTE: Mullen's will not reserve tables in the bar area, so sometimes we sit at the bar. Ask the hostess where the Meetup group is if you arrive late, I'll keep her informed.

Listed on several Meetups!

    I'm sorry I won't be attending tomorrow's outing at Mullens but the weather is so bad and where I live they don't usually shovel snow on the holidays. Hope you all have a great evening. I will try to catch the next one weather permitting. Happy New Year!

    Oh, I got there at Seven and the place was SRO. But there were two powerhouse players guesting (Wycliffe Gordon and Wayne Bergeron) so that might have been why.

    • Jim P Z

      Yes, it was Pete Ellman's Christmas Party with two Jazz Superstars as guests. It won't be as crowded on January 2nd. See you there at 7:30. -Jim
