Have you ever been to Buddy Guy's Legends in downtown Chicago? Do you like live music and blues jams? Why make the commute all the way into Chicago when you can experience a fun and popular blues jam right in your own backyard? On Saturday, June 7 at 8 p.m., there will be a Blues Jam in the Listening Room at the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park in Crystal Lake. Previous blues jams in the Listening Room have sold out, so don't miss out on the June 7 concert!
Shunnalo Brown and the rest of the band will play a variety of blues music. Lakeside welcomes audience participation with the band. Blues Jams provide opportunities for musicians of all talents to mix and mingle with one another. Both amateur and professional musicians have an opportunity to share their sounds in a common space, which makes for an unsuspecting and exciting experience, but audience members do not have to be musicians to attend and enjoy the show!
Siobhan Cottone, Lakeside's executive director, said, "All who attend the jams love the fun and engaged experience of live blues music and the opportunity to participate with the house band. Don't wait to purchase your tickets before they are sold out!"
Come relax, and enjoy the Blues Jam in the Listening Room on June 7 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased at www.lakesidelegacy.org or by contacting the box office and asking for Roger or Cori (815)-455-8000. If online sales have not sold out, tickets can also be purchased at the door for $20. Lakeside encourages people to purchase tickets in advance, especially to the Blues Jam. If you purchase tickets at the door on June 7, however, please arrive by 7:30 p.m. Lakeside encourages audience members to check social media sites and LakesideLegacy.org before attempting at the door sales, as sold out messages are posted on these sites prior to each concert. A cash bar is also available during the concert. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.lakesidelegacy.org.
The Listening Room is located within Lakeside Legacy Arts Park at 401 Country Club Road, Crystal Lake. Lakeside Legacy is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and is also home to the Historic Dole Mansion.
