Greetings to the Guardians of the Groove in the Windy City!
WWOZ is headed to Chicago for two exciting events in November, and we want you to help us kick off our stay in true New Orleans style. New Orleans and Chicago share a long musical history, and we look forward to meeting our Windy City Guardians of the Groove.
We'll be in town to do a live broadcast of Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, with special guests the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, from the Chicago Theatre on November 21. Here's the link to get tickets to the show.
And, we're happy to announce the first WWOZ party in Chicago! There'll be music by The BS Brass Band, New Orleans cuisine, and a raffle for a WWOZ Brass Pass, good for all 7 days of the 2014 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
The party happens at FitzGerald’s (6615 Roosevelt Rd, Berwyn, IL) on Wednesday, November 20, from 6:30 - 8:30pm. Tickets are $15 and proceeds will benefit WWOZ New Orleans. Here's where you can purchase advance tickets for the FitzGeralds event.
The first 50 guests will also receive a complimentary ticket to aforementioned Irvin Mayfield & NOJO concert. So make sure you arrive early and warm up those legs for some dancing!
