Latinicity, a Latin-inspired dining marketplace located in Block 37, and the presenting sponsor for the JazzCity: Chicago Latin Jazz Festival, a collaboration between the Jazz Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Park District, will host a five-week performance series in the Chicago Loop neighborhood. The series, Latinicity Live!, will coincide with Latinicity’s happy hour program from 4 – 7 p.m. with drinks specials including $5 margarita traditional, sangria roja or blanca and $3 draft beer.
Featuring a variety of artists, similar to Latinicity’s cultural focus on regions within Latin America, performers will be on-site at the restaurant on Thursdays from 4 – 6 p.m. for two 45-minute sets each week in advance of the annual JazzCity Chicago Latin Jazz Festival held July 14 and 15 at Humboldt Park (1301 N. Humboldt Drive). JazzCity is a free concert series initiated by the Jazz Institute of Chicago in collaboration with the Chicago Park District and is now celebrating its 20th anniversary season.
