Sun Spots: Mondays w/ Musician's Network MECCA

 Looking for Something To-Do on Mondays?  Look No Further! 

Monday evening was filled with great music at the Museum Shores Yacht Club with Musician’s Network MECCA!  MNM is a "network of Musicians Economically Conscious Creative Association,  committed to the sharing of resources in the music industry."  On Mondays, they bring together some of Chicago’s best jazz musicians at this free To-Do.  

On this particular Monday, I was able to catch Bethany Pickens, who is always a listening pleasure, whether she's playing an original number or a standard.  Panama, featuring Nanette Frank (with Dianne Madison, Mae Koen, Shawn Christopher and Shay Jones), blew me away with Sergio Mendes' "The Real Thing!"  Thank goodness I found my own, personal, tiny dance floor!

MNM offers a wonderful option to Jazzin’ at the Shedd.  Parking is ample at this To-Do (despite the crazy new parking-meters-in-parks thang), as is seating space.  Get there early and sit in the covered space or patio, or bring a lawn chair and set up in the grassy areas.  Cocktails and soft drinks are available for purchase and there is a limited food menu – or, if you prefer, bring your own food and drinks! 

One of the cool things about this To-Do is the wide age range of the jazz lovers!  Jazz vets are clearly in the house, but you’ll also find younger folks represented.  If you’re looking for something laid back for your Monday evening, be sure to give Mondays at the Museum Yacht Club with Musician’s Network MECCA a try! 

Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm.  Get the details
