"We're asking everyone attending to bring canned or nonperishable food items, which we will deliver to the Palatine Township Food Pantry," said Jazz Consortium bandleader/saxophonist Roy Vombrack. The pantry has a list of especially needed items at www.palatinetownship.com/food_pantry/.

"Last year's response was very gratifying, and we hope to get an even greater response from our fans and friends this season," he said.

The 17-member Jazz Consortium first started in the mid-1970s, consisting of former and current University of Illinois, Northern Illinois University and Northwestern University musicians with a love of big band music. The group went on to perform at jazz clubs, nightspots and concerts throughout the Chicago area, including an appearance at the Chicago Jazz Festival.

The Jazz Consortium disbanded in the early 1980s, with most of the members going on to full-time music careers. The band reunited two years ago, and has since been performing second Sundays monthly at Durty Nellie's in Palatine, as well as playing various concerts and clubs in the area.
