--7:00pm and 9:00pm-- Ben Lewis Trio
Start Date/Time: Tuesday, February 05, 2019 7:00 PM
Description:
    The Ben Lewis Trio is a dynamic gathering of some of Chicago’s best. Their performance explores both original music and the great American songbook with humor, passion and grace, seeking always to connect in musical conversation with the listener.

Ben Lewis, “A monster of a pianist” (Chicago Jazz Magazine), is an established performer of 25 years. Whether playing at the Chicago Jazz Festival or traveling the globe with Gary Sinise & the  Lt. Dan Band, Lewis feels at home making music.

Lewis, "one of the best kept secrets in Chicago” (Mark Ruffin – Listen Here! Radio)" has twice toured as a Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department and recorded with such Chicago luminaries as Matt Ulery, Grazyna Auguscik, Typhanie Monique and Tito Carillo. As founding member and Musical Director for the Lt. Dan Band with actor/bassist Gary Sinise, he's traveled the world performing for troops, veterans and their families.

His “shimmering pianism” and “go-for-broke energy” (Howard Reich – Chicago Tribune) are just part of what give Lewis such a singular voice.
