The Jazz Voyager is on a flight to Illinois to experience what has been lauded as one of the best live music venues in Chitown. Located at 6615 W. Roosevelt Road, FitzGerald’s Nightclub is officially in Berwyn, 60402, just half a dozen blocks from the Forest Park Blue Line stop at Oak Park Avenue.
In the early 1900s it started out as a roadhouse, then transitioned through several nightclubs and a lodge until the FitzGerald family bought it in 1980 and brought it to national attention as a music establishment.
I am told in no uncertain terms, it’s worth the commute. This Sunday the jazz Voyager will be privy to the talents of the Jazz Community Big Band Holiday Show with vocalist Ava Logan at 6:00pm with a $10.00 cover, $5.00 for 17 and under.
Be advised, always call ahead at 708-788-2118 to see when big band swing is being played, for they also showcase zydeco, country, folk and bluegrass.
