Jenna Nicholls w/ Myles Hayes - 7pm | $10

  • Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) 1401 West Devon Avenue Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)


The music of multi-instrumentalist Jenna Nicholls has been turning heads since she arrived on the door step of the Lower East Side of NY. Whether she’s crooning a jazz standard, belting out a New Orleans dirge or plucking her 1920’s style original ballads on her Ukulele, she’s giving a vintage genre a new spin with her own lush nostalgic style. Recently, Jenna has toured with Ingrid Michaelson, shared the stage with Oscar Winner Glen Hansard, Amanda Palmer, Lucius, and Joan as Policewoman. She released her latest project "Radio Parade" in 2018. Jenna has performed in venues all across the country including The Beacon Theater and Carnegie Hall.

Myles Hayes sings the standards of The American Songbook and performs originals in that style, inspired by such influences as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darren, Tony Bennett and Nat King Cole. He has performed professionally in hundreds of venues throughout Chicago where he is based, and across the country. His voice has been heard on national & international television commercials, live on Chicago's WGN Morning Show, performing the National Anthem for The Chicago White Sox over 40 times, and on his latest album of standards and originals entitled “You Were Mine”. As a musician constantly striving to perform at his best, he "...really blows the audience away" Myles Hayes “brings new life to the standards of the Sinatra and Nat King Cole era by invoking his own unique style representative of a new generation of progressive jazz” -Fort Worth Star Telegram
