I try to make this an annual appearance and though the afternoon setup was hot and sweaty, a bit of a breeze and cloud cover cooled us all down as I began to play a 90 min. set.
The Uptown Boys duo opened w. a fun set (when’s the last time anyone, Chicagoan or not- heard a song all about Jean Baptiste Point DuSable, whom most consider the first continual settler/founder of what is now Chicago?). Note the little girl whose Mamma smiled and took pics of as she wandered up and began playing the hand drum and danced. The crowd went nuts, she clapped and smiled, went back to drumming, danced a bit more. Smiles all around, really fun!
Already looking forward to next year in Argyle Street, Uptown Chicago.
My bro Dave Baumgartner helped make it all happen for the Market put a couple vids as well as pics up in his Instagram -here’s a clip. Kudos Dave!
Thanks for stopping by 🙂 -Glenn
