Jazz Consortium moves Nellie's show in Palatine to Feb. 19- Fremd H.S. Band special guest

The 17-piece Jazz Consortium Big Band, now in its twelfth year as a monthly fixture at Nellie's Gastropub & Concert Hub in Palatine, is moving its February show to the 19th from the 12th, to make way for the Super Bowl.

Special guest Fremd High School Jazz Ensemble will play from 6:00 to 6:30, followed by the Jazz Consortium, which plays until 9:00. All ages welcome.

Cover begins at 6:30: $10 cash, or $5 for students 17 and under. Seating is limited, so reservations suggested at (847) 358- 9150, ext. 2. Nellie's is at 180 N. Smith St., Palatine. Website:

"I think it's only the third time we've had to move our performance in the 11-plus years we've been playing at Nellie's," observed bandleader Roy Vombrack. "We normally play on the second Sunday every month, but it's hard to compete with the Super Bowl! So just for February, we're moving to the third Sunday at Nellie's, so people don't have to choose between watching us or watching the big game."
