More Chicago Big Band Jazz in 2012

The Jazz Consortium Big Band at Durty Nellie's in Palatine

Where’s Waldo?  Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?  Can’t help you with those, but if you want to know where to find great Big Band jazz in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, the Jazz Consortium Big Band will be swinging throughout 2012 at Durty Nellie’s Pub, 180 N. Smith St., Palatine, IL.

It’s the same day and place the Jazz Consortium has been playing since June–the second Sunday of each month in the evening.  This 17-piece band mixes in classic and modern Big Band selections from such bands as Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Buddy Rich and Maynard Ferguson, plus original compositions.  And you can eat and drink while enjoying swing, jazz-rock and latin favorites past and present.

Come enjoy the “Swingin’ Second Sundays” every month–who knows, you might even find Waldo grooving to the sounds…
