It’s always wonderful to perform at the wonderful iconic Chicago landmarks. As I walked by the lions guarding the entrance to the Art Institute, it reminded me how lucky I am to be performing music in Chicago. So many people associate Chicago with blues, but we have some of the greatest musicians in residence, performing all styles of music.
That’s one of the great things about our band, as a matter of fact. We have people adept at everything from rhythm & blues, disco, swing music, gospel, even opera & broadway!
Our Gala at the Art Institute last weekend indeed called upon all different styles of music, as performed for a variety of generations & even ethnic backgrounds. Music is the great equalizer, of course & I know we were a great success. It’s difficult to compete with Monet, Rembrandt & Picasso but we managed!
