Chicago SummerDance

Hello Chicago Friends

I would like to submit to you one of the best dance big bands Chicago has to offer.

Big Band Boom!

We also happen to be fronted by one of Chicago’s most treasured singers, Kimberly Gordon.

Wynton Marsalis had this to say about Kimberly Gordon:

“This girl ain’t bull$#%$ing”
– Wynton Marsalis – Director Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra

Chicago hero and Blue Note artist, Kurt Elling, has this to say about Kimberly:

“Kimberly Gordon is the real deal. The ultimate swing-lovers singer!”
– Kurt Elling

Kimberly recently ended a 10 year engagement at the Green Mill and as for the big band, we have been swinging stages all across the Midwest since 2009. Please take a listen to our samples and I am sure you will find something that will make your toes tap.

And beyond performing, the band is committed to educating audiences in this great american art form. Our singer Kimberly Gordon actually writes for some of the local publications and covers local events such as the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra coming to town at the end of last year. I know your department was also involved in that. Amazing show!

We are also favorites over at WGN and perform on their morning show a few times a year.

We haven’t had the chance to perform at Summer Dance yet but would be ecstatic to perform at it this year.

Please take a listen and let me know what you think!
