Latin music with variations of jazz, funk and blues will permeate the air at the Center for Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21, when Chévere de Chicago is joined on stage by Grammy-nominated trumpeter Victor Garcia and master harmonica player Howard Levy.

Chévere de Chicago is one of the area’s hottest bands mixing Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, jazz, blues and just about everything else into an exciting and unique collage of sound by playing drums, percussion, piano, timbales, organ, Moog and keyboards, guitar, sax, flute and Congas, according to Sharon Banaszak, director of the Center for Performing Arts.

Characterized by high voltage percussion and compelling original compositions, Chévere has performed in and around Chicago and the Midwest for more than 30 years, she said.

Tickets for this show at Governors State University are $28. For ticket information visit CenterTickets.net or call the box office at 708-235-2222.

This performance is part of the Made in Chicago Series, which is supported by The Chicago Community Trust and sponsored in part by First Midwest Bank. A portion of GSU’s arts programming is made possible by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
