2017 Performances

Our Wednesday evening tradition featured world class musicians up close and personal offering a great night of good listening. In 2017 we added another wonderful performance to our history that has included greats such as Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues, Amadeus Consort, Irish music with the incomparable John Williams, and even an amazing Beatles Tribute band!

Energy, excitement, and dancing (or listening)—really, it’s a PARTY—are Thursday night traditions at MBAA International! The amazing Big Ray brought together an exciting stage full of Chicago’s best blues performers for an incredible time together.
