Summer is in full swing, and City Winery Chicago’s July calendar is chock-full of shows and events you don’t want to miss!
We’re starting off the month with a huge celebration of Bob Weir and 50 years of Grateful Dead with Weir World: 6 days full of shows and events coinciding with the Grateful Dead concerts at Soldier field. On 6/30, 7/1 and 7/2, come out and see Jonathan Wilson and friends for a show with music, interviews and insights.
On 7/3, 7/4 and 7/5, we will be hosting a LIVE stream from Soldier Field of all the Grateful Dead shows. So if you weren’t able to grab tickets for the show, come join to watch the whole thing from the comfort of our concert venue! All shows will start at 7PM.
We will also be hosting shows throughout the week around the Grateful Dead shows to keep the celebration going. Steve Kimock and Jerry Joseph will play on 7/3 and 7/4 at Noon, Matisyahu and Friends on 7/4 at midnight and Railroad Earth on 7/5 at midnight. And don’t forget about Joan Osborne’s brunch show at 12PM on 7/5. All tickets for these shows can be found on our website or HERE on this dedicated site.
Post Weir World, there are still plenty of great shows to see, starting with the Bacon Brothers with Freedy Johnson on 7/6! Outside of both of their highly successful careers, Kevin and Michael have decided to share their talent and pursue their love for music. This will definitely be a fun one, so don’t miss it!
Later that week, Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde will here on 7/9! We’re so excited to finally have her here after a reschedule back in March. Then, on 7/14, Paris Combo is here to perform songs of their fifth album, 5. The quintet plays a great mixture of jazz, French pop,cabaret, gypsy, Latino and Middle Eastern music. There’s something for everyone to love at this show.
Guitarist and songwriter Shuggie Otis will be at City Winery for a 10:30PM show on 7/17. And later that weekend, Ray Wylie Hubbard performs with The Grahams on 7/19. Hubbard is an Americana favorite, and will be playing tunes from both his past albums and The Ruffian’s Misfortune, which was out earlier this year.
Five-time Grammy winner Marty Stuart will be at City Winery with his Fabulous Superlatives on 7/22 along with Sam Lewis! This country star has been making music for more than four decades, and he’s still ready to put on a great show every night.
Legendary 70’s punk group X will be playing a three night stay at City Winery on 7/26, 7/27, & 7/28. All original members of the group will be playing the shows. And, like last time they were here, these shows will sell out.
Three-time Grammy winner Delbert McClinton will be rounding out the month with his show on 7/29. He’ll be here to play songs off his 28th (wow!) studio album, Blind, Crippled and Crazy, along a lifetime of other work. What great way to end the month.
As always, we have our wine events throughout the month as well. The first event for wine lovers new and old will be on 7/09. The Wines of South America Dinner with Master Sommelier Evan Goldstein will start at 7PM and feature a three-course dinner paired with wines from Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
City Winery Wine School will be hosting the first of their summer series events the following week on 7/15. This grapes class features Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir and Syrah.
To round out the month, City Winery will be hosting Stag’s Leap Wine Cellar dinner on 7/30. The three-course dinner will feature wines from the wine cellar in Napa Valley, and guidance from Chris Smarto of Stag’s Leap!
Don’t miss out on your chance to come out to any of the events City Winery has going on this July!
