#MagicMondays at Andy’s begin on Monday at Andy’s, Chicago’s legendary Jazz club, with Chicago’s own international sensation, The Bobby Broom Trio, on Mondays from Labor Day to October 26th.  The trio is one of two projects Bobby currently leads, the second being The Bobby Broom Organi-Sation, which toured with Steely Dan across North America last year and from which rumors abound of an album coming soon. The Trio’s last album “My Shining Hour” (Origin, 2014) was the #38 album of 2014 in America!  Broom is one of the world’s top 20 guitarists, and his brief residency at Andy’s is always magic, so catch the #hotchill sound of Broom and his trio, featuring the amazing Chicago bassist Dennis Carroll and the great groove of Greg Artry on the drums.

The California Clipper is one of Chicago’s oldest and hippest nightlife venues.  The club took a break last year and refurbished and reopened, and is celebrating its first year in its new skin by bringing in Chicago’s legendary Jazz guitarist, Bobby Broom, and his Bobby Broom Trio, featuring Dennis Carroll on bass, and Gregory Arty on drums.

Broom is considered one of the top 20 Jazz guitarists in the world today, according to the bible of Jazz, DownBeat Magazine and their annual Critics Poll.  The trio’s last album, “My Shining Hour” (Origin) was the #38 album in America (JazzWeek), and Broom has been a big favorite of millennial audiences who like his hot chill sound. Women in particular groove on Broom’s elegant, stylish music, and the ambience of great venues like the Clipper, where there is a little romance and time with their significant others to chill and hang in a more intimate setting.

The trio will perform three nights, Sept. 3rd – Sept 5th, with two shows nightly: 9:30 & 11p on Thursday, and 10 & 11:30p on Friday and Saturday. Call (773) 384-2547 to reserve your space!

To that fan, and to everyone else who has shared and voted, Bobby would like to sincerely thank you.  The voting ends in three days.  If you haven’t taken their Reader’s Poll, now is the time:
