Event Date: June 30, 2020
Event Time: 7pm-9pm
We are thrilled to have Reggie Thomas back as our first performer since the lockdown. Though we won’t have a studio audience, this event will be our first fully live event STREAMED ONLINE with the same great sound and video resolution you have come to expect from Studio5. Everyone gets a front-row seat!
For this live-streamed performance, Reggie’s Trio Nexus will be performing a mix of original music and their own takes on tunes relevant to these times. Pieces will include Thad Jones’s Ah, That’s Freedom, an R&B classic, People Make the World Go ‘Round as well as Reggie’s original piece, Mother Emanuel. We’ll also get an opportunity to chat with Reggie about the trio’s approach and the material he chose for this performance. I know it will be a special evening.
Just FYI, the first hour of this performance will be carried LIVE on our radio program Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB (90.9FM). But if you want to SEE the action (and support the artists), purchase a ticket below and WATCH the whole show online. As a bonus, our online viewers will be able to interact with the artists via our chat room, and will be treated to a special “Online Only” second set following the radio broadcast.
Come join us for just $10. The revenue generated helps the artists and technicians who cannot otherwise be working. When you purchase a ticket you will receive login information for the broadcast. Let’s get together, hear some great music and hang out, at Studio5 … online!
