About this Event

Andy Brown is a guitarist based in Chicago. Born in New York in 1975, he has played professionally for over twenty years. He has had a varied performing career that has included stints in Cincinnati and New York City.

Since coming to Chicago in 2003, Andy has been fortunate to work at many of the area's finest jazz venues with his own bands, as well as playing his unique brand of solo jazz guitar. He has backed visiting jazz names at places including The Jazz Showcase and the Harris Theater. Currently he plays solo guitar every Thursday at The Green Mill and leads his quartet every Wednesday at Andy's Jazz Club.

As a sideman he has performed with internationally know jazz musicians including Scott Hamilton, Howard Alden, Harry Allen, Warren Vache, Ken Peplowski, Hod O’Brien, Anat Cohen, Kurt Elling, as well as many others. He has also worked with many names on the Chicago jazz scene including Russ Phillips, Don Stiernberg, Chris Foreman, Eric Schneider, Bobby Lewis and Judy Roberts.

Petra van Nuis is a jazz vocalist described inDownbeat Magazine as having “a light, gorgeous, and fairly delicate voice…a gift for melody and plenty of rhythmic confidence.” In addition to regular Chicago appearances, Petra appears nationally at festivals including the Cleveland Classic Jazz Party, the Roswell Jazz Festival and the Chautauqua JazzParty with such swing luminaries as Dan Barrett, Nicki Parrott, Ken Peplowski, John Di Martino and Rossano Sportiello. Petra's twenty year musical collaboration with her husband, guitarist Andy Brown, has been documented on “Lessons Lyrical” and “Far Away Places” two critically acclaimed albums re-issued on the Japanese label Muzak and used as in flight entertainment by All Nippon Airways,Japan's largest airline. Petra has fronted her popular Chicago-style Recession Seven band for a decade. Featuring veteran horn-men Eric Schneider, Russ Phillips and Bob Ojeda, the classic swing collective has been featured at regional jazz societies, the Chicago Jazz Festival and on their 2012 recording “Live In Chicago.”

$10 drink minimum charged per person in party if the total for beverages purchased by the party does not meet the minimum.
