A Tribute to Tony Williams

  • The Whistler 2421 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Join us for this very special and very FREE event at one of Chicago's coolest north side bars and venue, The Whistler!

As one of the most prominent, prodigious, and influential drummers of the 20th Century, Tony Williams is truly inspiring, most famously known for his tenure in Miles Davis' second great quintet (joining the band at age 17). Under the direction of Chicago drummer Justin Boyd, we'll be playing a mix of Tony's originals and music that he made famous through his extensive performing and recording career.
