One Night Jam

Since its debut in 2000 with Lowen & Navarro, One Night Jam has featured such diverse talent as:

  • Grammy-nominated country/Americana songwriter Gretchen Peters

  • Grammy-winning rocker Jim Peterik

  • Legendary bassist/vocalist Kasim Sulton

  • Powerful Chicago singer/songwriter Michael McDermott

  • Blues artist Anthony Gomes

  • Chicago legend and lead singer of Jefferson Starship Cathy Richardson

  • Folk legend David Mallett

In recent years we’ve added rock guitar/vocal legend Derek St. Holmes, world music phenomenon Acoustic Eidolon, international songwriter Jann Klose, and closer to home Chicago’s Mike Aquino, Heather Horton and Classical Blast. Since the untimely passing of Eric Lowen from ALS, Dan Navarro has continued on as a solo artist and still loves CST.

There are two separate types of One Night Jams – the downstairs Mainstage with 130 seats, including the comfy VIP couch seats (that include a photo with the artist) and the Edith Wood studio theatre upstairs where we offer the “Edie’s Attic” series – artists in more of a “house concert” setting.  All of our artists have enjoyed our theatre and our audiences.  We think you’ll be amazed at some of the names that will grace our stage in the coming year.

One Night Jam is BACK in 2021

We head into the holiday season with one ONJ favorite, and one sort-of-new-to us classic band!

First up, on Sunday, December 12th we are unbelievably proud to present the legendary Ides Of March for a very special, intimate acoustic Christmas show!

Featuring the original 4 members from 1964 (Jim Peterik, Larry Millas, Bob Bergland and Mike Borch) and 31-year-veteran keyboardist Scott May, the Ides will present a mix of Christmas favorites, original Christmas tunes, and some of their classic hits.

This kind of show is extremely rare for the Ides. We’ve had Jim Peterik numerous times over the years, Bob and Larry have joined him for a couple of songs now and then, and Scott May peformed a few years back. But now, we have them all together and this time they’re bringing drummer Mike Borch!

The legendary Ides harmonies will sound even sweeter in the intimate Chicago Street auditorium. Don’t miss this chance!
Tickets are here:

And then, on the following Sunday, December 19th, we present a ONJ Christmas tradition with Classical Blast! Bringing their special blend of classical and rock, covers and originals, come see why they have been audience favorites since their first show with us several years back!

Tickets for Classical Blast are here:
