The enduring and versatile voice of Bonnie Koloc has been heard in Chicago since 1968. for a decade, Bonnie was a pivotal act at the Earl of Old Town, drawing crowds that stood in lines around the block, hoping to get at least a place to stand and catch the hottest act in town. In time, her folk-oriented style merged with jazz and blues, and her versatility took her to Mr. Kelly’s, a long-time Chicago landmark. While continuing to play at the Earl, she began appearing at festivals. 14 albums and a legend later, and there is still only one voice like Bonnie’s.
Catch her live at the Pump House, accompanied by Don Stille on the piano and the accordion. Don has performed with The Chicago Symphony Orchestra and is a former winner of the Twin Cities Jazz Pianist of the Year.
The formerly married Lou and Peter Berryman, authors of eighteen albums and four songbooks of original material, have performed together for more than thirty-five years post-marriage. Their wonderfully accessible performances of their hilarious yet oddly profound songs leave audiences with cheeks aching from smiling. Sponsored by Screwloose Productions
