Kankakee GRILL
Jimmy Fastiggi

“Americana rock and roots” is the way Jimmy describes the music that he plays.
He started playing guitar at age 19 and immediately fell in love with the instrument. He began by teaching himself songs by the Beatles, Bob Dylan and acoustic music of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Over the next several years, he played in various types of bands including folk, bluegrass, country and rock and roll. As he began to listen to swing and jazz, he developed more interest in songwriting, especially the music from the American Songbook by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and the Gershwins.


In recent years, Jimmy has fallen back in love with the blues and plays songs by many of the great blues legends such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton. From simple folk, to Beatles-influenced rock, delta blues, Motown-flavored R&B, country or Swing Jazz, his music reflects elements from all these styles of music. Jimmy now lives in St. Joseph Michigan where he performs at various venues throughout Southwest Michigan and the Michiana area.

Jay Leno

Tickets on sale Friday,October 28, 2022

Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.” 

Jay Leno’s late night television ratings domination included two decades as the host of the #1-rated “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” – he never lost a ratings year in which he served as host.

Leno, currently produces and is host of the CNBC Television series “JAY LENO’S GARAGE” now in its fifth season.  “Jay Leno’s Garage” explores the world of cars, never forgetting that it’s the people behind the wheel who provide the real stories.  The series debuted in October 2015 and delivered CNBC’s most-watched first season in network history.  New episodes of “JAY LENO’S GARAGE” can be viewed on CNBC throughout the year.

The show is an outgrowth of JAY LENOS GARAGE YOUTUBE CHANNEL which Leno produces and has an international following on the Web and has garnered several Emmy Awards and nominations for Outstanding Special Class–Short-Format Nonfiction Programs.

His new product line JAY LENO’S GARAGE ADVANCED VEHICLE CARE launched in December of 2016 and has been well received by the Automotive Industry worldwide.  The products are available at www.lenosgarage.com.

Along with his CNBC show Jay is currently on air with various other television series, including “Last Man Standing.”  When he’s not on TV, Leno performs more than 100 stand-up shows annually across the country and internationally; participates in numerous charity and corporate events, does voice-overs for animated series, pens children’s books, and writes a monthly column in various automotive magazines.  And in his “spare” time (as if he has any), he enjoys working on his collection of classic cars and motorcycles.  In fact, he has built a number of cars, including an acclaimed eco-car in his eco-friendly green garage.

Leno is the recipient of many honors, including Emmy, People’s Choice, and TV Guide awards, Harris Poll selection as most popular star on television, the Hasty Pudding Award at Harvard University, The Mark Twain Prize, recipient of the Patriot Award given by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and being the first person to drive the pace car of all major NASCAR events.

He and his wife Mavis, an ardent human rights activist, live in Los Angeles.

REO Speedwagon

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon has rocked to the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the U.S., 40 million around the globe, and a string of worldwide hit singles.  The group’s landmark album, “Hi Infidelity,” spent 15 weeks in the number one slot and went on to earn nine-times certified platinum sales.  Thirty–plus years since that release, Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (lead guitar) and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying concert audiences with fan favorites such as “Keep On Loving You,” “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Take It On the Run,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” and more.  More information about REO Speedwagon is available at www.speedwagon.com.

Tesla Fri, Apr 21, 2023 | 9:00 PM
SILVER CREEK EVENT CENTER
Tesla

TESLA may have been born in the mid 80s eruption of leather, spandex, and big hair, but this band has never been about those things.  Their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic, 1970s rock and roll. The same roots that produced bands like The Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith.

TESLA’s 1986 platinum debut album, Mechanical Resonance, produced iconic hard rock hits, “Modern Day Cowboy” and “Little Suzi.”  1989’s The Great Radio Controversy brought in rock favorite “Heaven’s Trail (No Way Out)” and poignant ballad, “Love Song”.  In 1990, TESLA helped reshape the face of modern hard rock music by stripping down to the Five Man Acoustical Jam, a loose, informal collection of their biggest hits peppered with rock and roll classics by the Beatles, Stones, and others, such as their most popular single, a cover of Five Man Electrical Band’s “Signs.”

Another platinum album, Psychotic Supper, was released in 1991 and as the early 90s gave way to Seattle’s grunge wave, TESLA, unlike many other bands of their era, managed to keep pushing forward thanks to loyal fans and their ever-present unpretentious approach to craft.  After a worldwide arena tour as headliners, they released Bust a Nut in 1994.  Then, internal band conflicts shut everything down until 2000.

After a brief break, they exploded back onto the scene with a sold-out hometown show at the Arco Arena in Sacramento.  TESLA was back, on their own terms.  They started their own label and released their own music. The fans had never gone away, and TESLA was still selling hundreds of thousands of albums.  Since then, they have continued to release new original music, live sets, and more.  They are as productive as they have ever been.

TESLA has endured many of the same taste-changing challenges that affected many in the post-grunge world, but through it all, their blue-collar work ethic and dedication to the faithful fan base has helped them not just survive but thrive.  TESLA’s legacy is alive and well as they continue to record and sellout venues all over the world.  As comfortable, rugged, and dependable as your favorite pair of boots, they endure.  TESLA is a celebration of the greatest spirits of rock and roll.

Chicago

Earlier this year, Chicago announced their 38th studio album, BORN FOR THIS MOMENT, which arrived on July 15 via BMG on the heels of the previously released single “If This is Goodbye,” now climbing the charts of radio.  Featuring the signature sounds Chicago fans have come to love, BORN FOR THIS MOMENT, produced by Joe Thomas, captures the true heart of this legendary band.  Over the entire course of 14 vibrant new songs, BORN FOR THIS MOMENT encapsulates the unique blend of award-winning and personal songwriting, multilayered harmonic vocalizations, and world-class arrangements that have been electrifying audiences across the globe for decades.

On September 30, 2022, Gravitas Ventures released Chicago’s documentary “The Last Band on Stage” directed by Peter Curtis Pardini and narrated by the band’s longtime friend and actor Joe Mantegna.  On March 14, 2020 Chicago was the last band playing in the U.S. as COVID lockdowns began.  The Last Band on Stage tells the incredible story of how the 55 year-old band survived a pandemic that stopped the world in its tracks.

“Chicago has faced many obstacles in lasting 55 years, but the pandemic was possibly their greatest challenge.  I’m excited for people to see the story of how they got back to the stage to continue performing,” said director Peter Curtis Pardini.  “We’re excited to be bringing The Last Band on Stage to audiences worldwide.  This funny and informative documentary offers an inside look at how the legendary band Chicago were able to produce content even during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gravitas Ventures’ Acquisition Coordinator, Mackenzie Maguire.

 Hailed as one of the most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in as the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s Top 125 Artists Of All Time.  And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.

Chicago received the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the GRAMMYS.  The Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates performers who have made outstanding contributions of artistic significance to the field of recording. A special award ceremony and tribute concert celebrating the honorees was held in 2020.

Chicago was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  This was their first nomination.  They’ve been eligible since 1994.  A long time coming!

Chicago’s first album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2014.  Chicago managed to fuse pop, rock and jazz together perfectly in this double album.

Robert Lamm and James Pankow have become inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017.  These legendary songwriters wrote mega-hits such as, “25 or 6 to 4,” “Saturday In The Park,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Make Me Smile,” and many others.

The International Trombone Association presented its 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award to James Pankow. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes people who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to the trombone profession over a long career.

Chicago’s lifetime achievements include two Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, Founding Artists of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor, and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of US cities.  Record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles.  An incredible 25 of their 38 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 48 gold and platinum awards.

Chicago have toured every year since the beginning – they’ve never missed a year.  The original three band members are Robert Lamm on keyboards and vocals, Lee Loughnane on trumpet and vocals and James Pankow on trombone.  The band line-up also includes Wally Reyes, Jr. on drums, Tony Obrohta on guitar, Loren Gold on keyboards and vocals, Ray Herrmann on sax and flute, Neil Donell on vocals, Eric Baines on bass and Ramon “Ray” Yslas on percussion.

From the signature sound of the Chicago horns, their iconic vocalists, and a few dozen of ever-Classic Songs, this band’s concerts are celebrations.  2023 marks the band’s 56th consecutive year of touring!

Chicago continues to be true ambassadors for their beloved hometown, carrying the city’s name with pride and dignity around the world.

Some of Chicago’s hits include:

 Make Me Smile               Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

25 or 6 to 4                       Saturday In The Park

Beginnings                        Questions 67 and 68

Happy Together

2023 will mark the 14th year of the highly successful, hit-filled summer package, The “Happy Together” Tour.  The touring sensation that has crisscrossed the nation delighting audiences for over a decade returns this summer with a show full of chart-topping hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s – an undeniable 61 Billboard Top 40 smashes.  The Tour is once again joined by The Turtles, who also act as musical hosts for the evening.  Along with The Turtles will be Little Anthony, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap, The Vogues, and The Classics IV. 

The Turtles are best known for their harmony-heavy California pop sound.  With such hits as “Elenore,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “It Ain’t Me Babe,” “You Showed Me,” and the title of the tour, “Happy Together,” the band ruled the airwaves in the late ‘60s.  Ron Dante joins the line-up to delight with his own mega-hits, “Sugar” and “Tracy.”

We are proud to present Little Anthony, who has over 60 years in show business and over 50 million records sold worldwide.  Little Anthony’s voice has not changed a bit and is considered one of the greatest voices of all time!  Little Anthony was inducted into the 2009 class of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  Some of the most iconic songs ever written that Little Anthony performs include: “Goin’ Out of My Head,” “Hurts So Bad,”  “Tears On My Pillow,”  “I’m On The Outside (Looking In),” and “Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop.”

 We are thrilled to have Gary Puckett & The Union Gap back on The “Happy Together” Tour.  Gary’s trademark voice will be belting out his hits one more time.  Fans will affectionately remember “Young Girl,” “Over You,” “Woman, Woman,” “This Girl Is A Woman Now,” “Lady Willpower,” “Don’t Give In To Him,” and more.

 The Vogues are also known for their harmony-driven soaring pop sound.  The Vogues had numerous Top 10 hits with singles such as “Five O’Clock World,” “You’re The One,” “My Special Angel,” and “Turn Around Look At Me,” among others.

 The Classics IV, with their southern soft rock sound, are one of the most popular and influential pop groups of the ’60s and ’70s.  They achieved phenomenal success with hits “Spooky,” “Stormy,” “Traces,” and “Everyday With You Girl.”

 The tour has played more than 50 plus shows a year and 2023 will be no exception.  More information on the Happy Together Tour is available at https://happytogethertour.com/.
