The Jazz Institute of Chicago's Annual Jazz Club Tour, rolls out Wednesday August 27, 2014.
On-line sales are now closed, but you can still get your button at participating clubs. Buttons are $25 through August 26 and $35 on August 27, 2014.
What is the intersection of tradition and innovation? Jazz, of course! Find that intersection and many interesting side streets between 6:00 p.m. and midnight on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at our Annual Jazz Club Tour.
The Jazz Club Tour takes its patrons for a ride to venerable jazz clubs, small joints, and community centers throughout Chicago. Explore and enjoy the longstanding bebop traditions of the Jazz Showcase in the south Loop, the upscale environs of the Drake Hotel’s Palm Court and Coq d’Or, and everything in between.
To join the fun, buy a promotional button that gives access to all participating clubs as well as trolley transportation between clubs.
