June 20 - The Milwaukee Connection, featuring the winner of our 2012 Chuck Hedges Memorial Scholarship, Jacob Richter. The Milwaukee Connection is Chuck Hedges' old band, some of the best veterans in the local music scene. They play a lot of swing and standards.

We award the scholarship in his memory to a local high school student each year, to attend a summer jazz camp.

August 1 - Johnny Padilla Quartet. Johnny plays sax and flute, and sings, too. He does a wide variety of styles, including Latin. Johnny's a Cutler Park favorite, and so is his mother, who entertains everyone by dancing all night long.
