ARTIST INFORMATION:

 

Diana & the Dishes, Thursday, June 1, 8pm-10:30pm

Garnering comparisons to Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Carole King, and Cole Porter, Chicago band DIANA & THE DISHES presents a unique, high-energy recipe of pop, soul, wit, tight musicianship and contagious fun. Since forming in 2008 around singer/songwriter/pianist, Diana Lawrence, the band has taken their city by storm, playing reputable rock venues such as the Schubas, Martyrs, Double Door and Subterranean, while also becoming favorites at listening rooms and creative events, including The Paper Machete and the Uptown Poetry Slam at The Green Mill. Throughout 2015 and 2016, the Diana & the Dishes played a monthly residency at the High Hat Club, a boutique music and comedy club on Chicago’s north side. The band’s debut release, “Take A Picture,” was listed in Music Connection Magazine’s Hot 100 for 2011, and a new album is currently in production. Learn more about the band here.

There will be a $5 cover at the door.  Dinner guest please RSVP 210 Restaurant & Live Music Lounge Reservati or by phone at 847-433-0304, in advance, as we anticipate that our dining and lounge areas will commit early.

Brothers and Others with Louis Zagoras, Friday, June 2, 8pm-11:30pm

Brothers and Others is an accumulation of years of friendship and shared creativity. Late in high school, Chip and Rob met when Chip saw Rob performing on stage at New Trier West and shortly after that, the duo partnered up with Tom Cloud and Matt Casey to form MESA. MESA became a favorite of Chicago's north side and north shore and the band started recording, expanding their reach around the Midwest.

Tommy Kleeman (Rob’s brother) joined in late in the 70's and was followed shortly thereafter by keyboardist Pete Spero. The band gained a modicum of success with inclusion on the WKQX hometown album and appearances at Chicago Fest.

Brothers and Others takes the stage at 8 p.m. and will play until approximately 10 p.m., turning the mics over to ROLLOVER.

Founded by Louie Zagoras, lead singer/lead Guitarist and primary songwriter, ROLLOVER is deeply rooted in blues and classic guitar driven rock. Louie and Rollover toured the States back and forth in the 90's when Rollover’s first record broke big on Chicago's 93.1 WXRT FM radio. Louie's song "Shipwreck" was the break-out single. His sound is described as "Roots Rock meets the Blues". Louie was the first Chicago Rock Artist ever to be signed by the Legendary Bill Graham Management (Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Neville Brothers, Joe Satriani etc.).

With the popularity of Rollover’s debut CD growing, Bill Graham put the band on the road supporting top Rock acts like The Allman Brothers, Joe Satriani, Sheryl Crow, Dave Mason, The Neville Brothers, Blues Traveler, John Hiatt, Hot Tuna, Johnny Winter, Jimmie Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Robin Trower, Eddie Money, and many others. In 1995 Louie's song "Shipwreck" was featured on A&M Records "H.o.r.d.e. CD Sampler." Rollover did many tour dates supporting Guitarist Joe Satriani and even went along with Joe to the U.K for a month of sold out shows in 1996. Upon returning to the states the band did two more sold out nights with Joe and the famous Fillmore in San Francisco. Learn more here

Judy Roberts, Wednesday, June 28, 6-9pm

Pianist/singer Judy Roberts is “Chicago’s Favorite Jazz Woman” and recognized as a worldwide jazz star thanks to the success of her international recordings and concert performances. From the Midwest to Phoenix to Singapore, Judy is best known for her fun-loving approach to an eclectic and extensive repertoire, her hard-swinging piano playing, her ability to combine lush and sensitive vocals with rapid-fire scat singing and for her unique ability to communicate with her audience in a relaxed and intimate style.

A multiple Grammy nominee, her twenty-plus album/CD releases include the “The Other World,” whose hit single “Señor Blues” was number one on the jazz charts and in radio airplay; the album “Trio,” with Ray Brown and Jeff Hamilton; the song “Twilight World,” co-written with piano diva Marian McPartland; and her international hit rendition of Dave Frishberg’s “My Attorney Bernie.”

In addition to club and concert appearances, Judy performs at such jazz festivals as the North Sea Fest in Holland, the Singapore Jazz Fest, the Chicago Jazz Festival, and is a regularly featured artist on the Joe Segal and the Jazz Cruise Line jazz cruises, as well as the Newport Beach and West Coast Jazz Parties.

Rico, Friday, June 30, 9pm-12am

With a rich sound of diversified musical cultures, Rico mixes sophisticated melodic genres and ethnicity to create an immense fiery soulful sound through bass, congas, percussion, drums, timbales, keyboards, guitar, and pure passion. This sound can be heard on their CD’s entitled “Make Music (2010)” and “Casa De Tambores (2004)”. Influenced tremendously by the sound and spirit of Santana, as well as the innovative rock, soul, jazz, afro-cuban, blues, funk, reggae, and hip-hop pioneers, the band is comfortable in any genre and often puts their own spin on covers from Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Kanye West, Hendrix, Santana and more.
