Here is more of what people are saying about the Jazz Consortium Big Band's spirited, lively performances of its compelling originals and the best Swing, Jazz-Rock and Latin-Jazz classics in Chicago and suburbs:
“Jazz Consortium rocks EPIC!!! Great fun with friends old and new listening to this magnificent band...at Durty Nellie's!”
"...thank you to the Jazz Consortium for providing such excellent music and entertainment at the Boulder Ridge Country Club Summer Outdoor Concert...I have received numerous comments from club members saying how good the music was and that they thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The band performed brilliantly. It was the best entertainment we've had at the club in a long time...We can't wait for the Jazz Consortium's return performance!"
"I caught your first set last night at Fitz's. It was fantastic. I really enjoyed it. I'm always blown away by a big horn sound in a tight room. You guys sounded great!!"
“What a great night it was to share…in hearing Chicago's best the Jazz Consortium…believe me, it won't be our last time! These guys ‘wailed’! I only wish dancing was permitted as I had trouble staying seated in my chair! Gotta Dance!”
"On behalf of our residents, families, staff, and all the community who attended your fantastic concert on Sunday, please accept our sincerest thanks for an afternoon we will long remember around here!!! I have never seen our Chapel so full or so enthusiastic--and that is a tribute to the skill and dedication for the Jazz Consortium members, masters of their instruments and of the great music of the Big Band era."
"My 91 yr old Mother asked me to Thank You all for 'the soul filling music' the group provided again 8/12. She loved the touching 'Nature Boy' arrangement and the guest singer. We get to enjoy your show as her health allows with well over 15 shows the last 2 yrs...I brought my kids last night too. Continue to share your gifts and thank you for the memory, joy and touching arrangements you offer."
"Thank you all for your time and talent last night for the St. John Brebeuf 65th Anniversary event. Many people came up to me afterward and said they had a great time and really appreciated the music, so it was certainly a success. I’m glad it all worked out for the band and I’m sure you have a lot of new fans."
"Although I've heard stories about the Jazz Consortium Big Band and imagined how energizing it must be to see them live, it wasn't until yesterday that I had the pleasure of experiencing the reality of it all. I truly enjoyed the music! What a swinging, great sounding band. Thank you for a wonderful evening."
