‘It’s Thursday, Let’s Dance!’ seeks local talent


Downtown Evanston is seeking musicians for the upcoming 16th season of the "It’s Thursday! Let’s Dance!" summer concert series. Musicians of all styles and genres are invited to apply.

The only outdoor dance floor north of Chicago will feature dance instruction from 6 to 6:45 p.m. followed by live music and dancing from 7 to 9 p.m. on six Thursdays this summer.

Selected musical groups will be asked to perform on one evening and will receive $500 for the performance.

Each Thursday will spotlight a different musical genre and typically draws about 200 dancers and observers..

Downtown Evanston, the organization that manages and markets the downtown district, presents this free series to bring people out to enjoy the entertainment and many restaurants and shops downtown Evanston has to offer.

An application form is available on the Downtown Evanston website.
