WORDS AND MUSIC - "Jeannie Tanner makes every note count."
Why you should go ... If you missed the debut at City Winery, you now have an opportunity to see some of Chicago's top vocalist's perform songs that Tanner wrote for them. (If you went the first time, you already know why you should come again!)
What you should know ... a dinner reservation gets you into the room. Otherwise, show up early and settle in for the rest of the night.
Who's on first ... Friday 8/11: Elaine Dame, Paul Marinaro, Tammy McCann & Typhanie Monique
Saturday: 8/12: Alyssa Allgood, Andy Pratt, Abigail Riccards & Michele Thomas, with special guest appearances (TBA). 9:30 p.m. & 11:30 p.m. $15
What about the musicians ... Jeannie Tanner singing & playing trumpet, Dan Murphy (co-producer/pianist/Fri), Lisa McQueen (piano/composer/Sat), Cory Biggerstaff (bass), Darren Scorza (drums), Neal Alger (guitar/Fri) and Tim Fitzgerald (guitar/Sat)
