Blue Jean Gala

Blue Jean Gala 2017

featuring Los Lobos

Friday, June 23, 2017  ♦  6:00 PM

4544 N. Lincoln Ave. · Gary & Laura Maurer Hall · 773.728.6000

Old Town School of Folk Music’s 2017 Blue Jean Gala pairs a one of a kind concert featuring Los Lobos with a roaming feast, where attendees partake in a selection of hors d’oeuvres and small-plates from the many Zagat-rated restaurants in Lincoln Square. Guests will also enjoy live music from several Old Town School teaching artists as they make their way along Lincoln Ave. Surprise elements throughout the evening will delight our guests with Old Town School’s unique brand of casual cool.

Los Lobos is a multiple Grammy-Award winning band. They achieved international acclaim with over forty years of rollicking performances across the globe with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in 1973.

"For four decades Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock." - Rolling Stone

"The genius of Los Lobos resides in their innate ability to find the redemptive power of music, no matter the style they choose to play." - All About Jazz
