We anticipate that we will sell out for this popular event so make your reservations 210 Restaurant & Live Music Lounge Reservati <p> </p> <p>The buffet menu will include Chef Jeff’s famed House-Smoked Lox with Mini Bagels, a Biscuits and Egg Benedict Station prepared traditional or Florentine style, Deviled Eggs, Chopped Liver, Cucumber Dill Salad, Roast Beet & Spinach Salad with a mouthwatering Green Goddess dressing, Cranberry Tuna Salad, Chopped Salad, Shrimp & Chicken Gumbo, Andouille Jambalaya, Pit Smoked Ham, Scalloped Potatoes, Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing and Gravy, Corn Pudding, Roast Scottish Salmon with Citrus and Capers, Asparagus Polonaise, Banana Cream Pie, Chocolate Mousse, Apple and Pecan Pies, fresh fruit and cookies.</p> <p>                                                                                                                 </p> <p> “With her flamboyance, range, and penchant for upper-register melisma, Jeannie Holliday sometimes sounds like a neosoul singer possessed by the ghost of Minnie Riperton. But in other ways she’s solidly in the soul-blues tradition: she avoids grandstanding, preferring to use artifice to convey depth and sincerity rather than ironic detachment. She makes her connection to the blues even more evident with her take-no-prisoners storytelling—in several of the songs on her 2010 album <em>You Can’t Blame Me</em> (Blast), her characters unflinchingly settle personal scores. <em>Bare n’ It All</em> (Soother), a sampler she released a couple years ago, showcases her eclecticism and her spirituality: Its five tracks include tunes by R. Kelly (“Did You Get My Love Letter”), Chicago-born hit maker Miki Howard (“Luv Under New Management”), and Detroit R&B star K’Jon (“On the Ocean”), which she delivers as an inspirational tour de force). The title tune, a riveting portrayal of a prison inmate’s dark night of the soul, melds worldly and spiritual intensity. Like any vocalist, Holliday is at her best with a responsive band behind her; that’s hardly guaranteed in local clubs, but her backup crew for this gig, the Kevin Harper Connection, is tight and versatile.” - David Whiteis, <em>Chicago Reader</em></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Bill Pantle, Sunday, May 14, 5 pm-9 pm </strong></p> <p>End Mother’s Day on a high note and head over to 210 Restaurant for a delicious dinner and wonderful “Tribute to Old Blue Eyes” from Bill Pantle.

Joan Hickey Trio featuring George Fludas and John Sims, Sunday, May 21, 6pm-9pm

Joan Hickey teaches and performs as a freelance pianist in the Chicago area. Howard Reich, of the Chicago Tribune, wrote of her playing, "Hickey remains one of the most appealing and distinctive pianists in the city ... (she) produces gorgeously singing lines and unexpected harmonies. The gentility of her touch is matched by the intellectual accomplishment of her improvisation."

Hickey has been recording and leading her own groups (trio, quartet. sextet) since 1980, as well as accompanying vocalists. She has performed in such venues as The Jazz Showcase, The Green Mill, Pete Miller's and the Chicago Jazz Festival. Cab Calloway, Joe Williams, Milt Hinton, Nat Adderly, Von Freeman and Buster Williams are among the artists Professor Hickey has worked with. She has toured in Italy, Sweden, and Denmark with the Jazz Members Big Band. She has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts grants, an Illinois Arts Council grant in music composition, and her quintet was a finalist in the Hennessy Jazz Competition. Her latest compact disc, Soulmates was nominated for best jazz CD at the Chicago Music Awards. Lloyd Sachs wrote in the Chicago Sun Times, "Pianist Joan Hickey's Soulmates, featuring renowned bassist Buster Williams, is as notable for her songwriting and arranging skills as her keyboard chops. A vibrant harmonic glow informs her jazz and pop classics and originals."

 

Erik Findling Entity, Wednesday, May 24, 7pm-10pm

Derrick Procell & the Redeemers, Thursday, May 25, 7:30pm-10:30pm

Derrick Procell has been singing since in bar bands before he was legal, recording his first Nashville recording as the lead singer in a band, Mothers Worry, when he was 16.

 

In the 70’s fronted bands rooted in blues, rock, and country. He’s a compellingly energetic, and therefore sought-after, front man who not only knocks people out with his voice but also blows ‘em away with his two-fisted piano playing and rugged blues harmonica solos.

 

Derrick enthralls audiences with his live shows. His years of experience have only added to his ability to command the stage, and his music is deep, real, and compelling. At the end of a gig, he’s often left cleaning a stage littered with women’s underwear. As Bill Wilson of the blues blog Reflections in Blue says, “Bottom line…Derrick Procell is every bit the Real Deal.”

 

An accomplished songwriter, Derrick’s songs have been recorded by The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Logan Daniels, and Melissa Manchester. He also recorded two CDs of his Americana songs: Born in the Heartland and Takes On the Country.  Recently, Derrick began providing original songs for TV and film including: My Name is Earl, Criminal Minds, Boston Legal, Saving Grace, Providence, The Office, True Blood, King of the Hill, Bloodlines, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

But in other ways she’s solidly in the soul-blues tradition: she avoids grandstanding, preferring to use artifice to convey depth and sincerity rather than ironic detachment. She makes her connection to the blues even more evident with her take-no-prisoners storytelling—in several of the songs on her 2010 album <em>You Can’t Blame Me</em> (Blast), her characters unflinchingly settle personal scores. <em>Bare n’ It All</em> (Soother), a sampler she released a couple years ago, showcases her eclecticism and her spirituality: Its five tracks include tunes by R. Kelly (“Did You Get My Love Letter”), Chicago-born hit maker Miki Howard (“Luv Under New Management”), and Detroit R&B star K’Jon (“On the Ocean”), which she delivers as an inspirational tour de force). The title tune, a riveting portrayal of a prison inmate’s dark night of the soul, melds worldly and spiritual intensity. Like any vocalist, Holliday is at her best with a responsive band behind her; that’s hardly guaranteed in local clubs, but her backup crew for this gig, the Kevin Harper Connection, is tight and versatile.” - David Whiteis, <em>Chicago Reader</em></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Bill Pantle, Sunday, May 14, 5 pm-9 pm </strong></p> <p>End Mother’s Day on a high note and head over to 210 Restaurant for a delicious dinner and wonderful “Tribute to Old Blue Eyes” from Bill Pantle.

Joan Hickey Trio featuring George Fludas and John Sims, Sunday, May 21, 6pm-9pm

Joan Hickey teaches and performs as a freelance pianist in the Chicago area. Howard Reich, of the Chicago Tribune, wrote of her playing, "Hickey remains one of the most appealing and distinctive pianists in the city ... (she) produces gorgeously singing lines and unexpected harmonies. The gentility of her touch is matched by the intellectual accomplishment of her improvisation."

Hickey has been recording and leading her own groups (trio, quartet. sextet) since 1980, as well as accompanying vocalists. She has performed in such venues as The Jazz Showcase, The Green Mill, Pete Miller's and the Chicago Jazz Festival. Cab Calloway, Joe Williams, Milt Hinton, Nat Adderly, Von Freeman and Buster Williams are among the artists Professor Hickey has worked with. She has toured in Italy, Sweden, and Denmark with the Jazz Members Big Band. She has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts grants, an Illinois Arts Council grant in music composition, and her quintet was a finalist in the Hennessy Jazz Competition. Her latest compact disc, Soulmates was nominated for best jazz CD at the Chicago Music Awards. Lloyd Sachs wrote in the Chicago Sun Times, "Pianist Joan Hickey's Soulmates, featuring renowned bassist Buster Williams, is as notable for her songwriting and arranging skills as her keyboard chops. A vibrant harmonic glow informs her jazz and pop classics and originals."

Derrick Procell & the Redeemers, Thursday, May 25, 7:30pm-10:30pm

Derrick Procell has been singing since in bar bands before he was legal, recording his first Nashville recording as the lead singer in a band, Mothers Worry, when he was 16.

In the 70’s fronted bands rooted in blues, rock, and country. He’s a compellingly energetic, and therefore sought-after, front man who not only knocks people out with his voice but also blows ‘em away with his two-fisted piano playing and rugged blues harmonica solos.

Derrick enthralls audiences with his live shows. His years of experience have only added to his ability to command the stage, and his music is deep, real, and compelling. At the end of a gig, he’s often left cleaning a stage littered with women’s underwear. As Bill Wilson of the blues blog Reflections in Blue says, “Bottom line…Derrick Procell is every bit the Real Deal.”

An accomplished songwriter, Derrick’s songs have been recorded by The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Logan Daniels, and Melissa Manchester. He also recorded two CDs of his Americana songs: Born in the Heartland and Takes On the Country.  Recently, Derrick began providing original songs for TV and film including: My Name is Earl, Criminal Minds, Boston Legal, Saving Grace, Providence, The Office, True Blood, King of the Hill, Bloodlines, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Additionally, Derrick has been the voice of advertising giants like McDonald’s, Chevy, Budweiser, Coca-Cola, Kraft, Ford, and Kellogg’s.
