The Flippo Jazz Quartet brings it's unique and refreshing program to Tommy Nevin's Pub on Sunday, October 30th from 3-6pm. There is no cover charge and the pub/restaurant is ALL AGES at this time, so it will be a great opportunity for a free family jazz concert.
The ensemble has performed and recorded in the Chicago area since 1992 and recently released it's fifth CD, "Life on Mars." This CD presents a collection of jazz arrangements of popular classics from the 60's and 70's by artist such as the Lenon/McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder and Joni Mitchell.
