Chicago Grandstand Big Band Christmas Show, The West Loop Jazz Band
Chicago Grandstand Big Band's annual Christmas Show with Singing Saucy Santa. Santa will be arriving towards the end of the 1st set, sing a tune or 2 with the band and then visit with the kids. Santa then joins the band to sing some more during the 2nd set. This is an all ages and a very fun show and has been a Chicago Grandstand Big Band and FitzGerald's favorite for many years now. Doors open at 5 pm. The West Loop Jazz Band opens the show.
Little ones visiting Santa get in free but all persons under 21 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Food is also available from Capri Restaurant, located in the FitzGerald's lot, or from neighboring restaurants.
Chicago Grandstand Big Band (with vocalist Julie Ann Caselli) has been an integral part of Chicago‘s entertainment community for over 30 years.
