The Flat Cats, a six-piece band, performs a range of vintage and modern jazz and blues music, as well as contemporary and timeless standards.

The musicians have years of performing, arranging, and composing experience and have played many shows in Chicagoland, including Navy Pier, Grant Park and the Arcada Theatre.

All performances take place Thursdays at 7 p.m. at the Virginia Mary Hayter Village Green, 5510 Prairie Stone Parkway, across the street from the Sears Centre Arena, off Route 72 in the Poplar Creek at 59/90 "Entertainment District."

Admission is free. Bring a blanket and picnic to the amphitheater. If you are bringing a picnic, do not bring glass bottles, glasses or glass containers for the safety of barefoot patrons.
