The Chicago Cellar Boys in concert. Celebrate the holidays with Chicago’s premiere traditional jazz group! The Chicago Cellar Boys specialize in the jazz and hot dance music from the 1920s and 30s (eg. Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong) within stylistic accuracy and wild abandon. Hearing this group is like time-traveling and walking in on an early form of jazz as it was being invented. Their repertoire contains some recognizable pieces that are still played in other contexts, but many that were exclusively of the era and have otherwise been lost to history. This concert will be recorded live for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB.
This concert is on Friday, December 20 at 8 p.m.
Cash bar, light snacks and free street parking. Doors open for cocktails and socializing at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for general seating, $25 for cabaret seating at Studio5, 1934 Dempster Street, Evanston, Ill., 60202. Click here for tickets. For more information, call 847-328-6683 or visit https://www.studio5.dance/jgdbvzkjdbk/live-at-studio5-the-chicago-cellar-boys.
