Very excited to play Millennium Park tonight for Chicago Gospel Fest, at the incredible Frank Gehry-designed Pritzker Pavilion. It’s the 2nd time the band has played here (my favorite venue in the city, and possibly the world, but I’ve never been to Red Rocks…), but this will be my 4th time on the stage:
- June 2007
Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 played a free show, and Fela’s youngest son invited everyone up to dance. Calamity ensued.
- July 2008
After a lovely dinner at Tavern on the Park, my girlfriend and I rushed the (empty) stage, hopped two velvet ropes, and I proposed. And then we were politely escorted off by security.
- September 2009
Celebrating the European release of “Beat of Our Own Drum” and my impending nuptials, the band played at noon on a Sunday, for a healthy crowd of family, friends, tourists, and Jazz Fest early birds.
- June 2012
Chicago Gospel Fest, here we come!- BT
