This year’s official poster features three musicians from last year’s Festival, Andrew Vogt on bass, Sarah Marie Young singing vocals, and Makaya McCraven on drums. They will be back this year as well as so many other great talents who generously help us raise money for hunger release. Our complete schedule is posted. Take a look. Plan to attend and support the cause. See you soon!
The dates are March 7-11, 2018 for this year’s Chi-Town Jazz Festival Supporting Hunger Relief. You’ll be able to enjoy the talents of Seven Divas featuring Frieda Lee and Maggie Brown, Bobby Lewis, Tim Fitzgerald, Neil Alger, Tammy McCann, Eric Schneider, Typhanie Monique, Sarah Marie Young, Aaron McEvers, Bobby Broom, Erwin Helfer, Jeremy Kahn, Ryan Cohan, Geof Bradfield, Greg Ward, Dennis Carrol, and Greg Artry. Our venues include the Jazz Showcase, Andy’s Jazz Club, Winter’s Jazz Club, First Unitarian Church of Chicago in Hyde Park, PianoForte, The Green Mill, and The First Presbyterian Church of Evanston.
