The 35th annual Chicago Jazz Festival is right around the corner! This free, four day musical extravaganza starts on August 29th at noon at the Chicago Cultural Center, then moves on to Millenium Park in the evening and continues through September 1st.
This year’s lineup features an amazing array of musicians, many of them native Chicagoans. We are especially excited that the Frank Russell Band, led by Frank Russell , the bassist in Stitely Entertainment’s 312 Chicago, will be featured at the Von Freeman Pavillion starting at noon on Saturday, August 31st. The festival has rarely presented groups led by electric bassists, and Frank will certainly tap into electricity to kick off Saturday’s festivities with a bang. You won’t want to miss it!
