Event Details

When we say Chicago, we think of chilly winters, Michael Jordan, stunning architecture, Barack Obama, and... nothing but the BLUES. Until today, Chicago remains the epicenter of the blues and Chicago blues is still regarded as one of the most significant influences on rock music.

To remember those "good old days" in one of Chicago's (in)famous blues clubs (such as Blue Chicago, Buddy Guy's Legends or the now defunct Checkerboard Lounge), we are delighted to invite you to the most beautiful jazz club in Brussels where famous signer and storyteller Steve Maas will entertain us around the history and story of blues.

This event is Open to: UofC Alumni, Ryder Club Alumni, their partners and friends... Please note that seats are scarce – so whomever is first in, will be first served!
