Chuck Jennings...Musical Entertainment

The Passion of Music

Simply put, music is one of Chuck's passions. Upon first hearing the Beatles "I Want To Hold Your Hand" he was hooked. Chuck will be hosting the"OPEN MIC" every 3rd Monday of the month at 6:30pm at Prarie Krafts Brewery in Buffalo Grove so next date is March 19. As a regular stand in for his buddy Rob, Chuck also hosts the 1st & 3rd Thursdays open mic at  Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich as needed and will be hosting on March 15. Chuck and his buddys Dean Milano, Chris Minardi, & James Costanza (aka The $100 Quartet) will be at Mac's n Slade in Palatine on Friday February 23 and on Friday March 2 he teams up with his friend Lenny Paulson for some coffee house type songs served with crafted spirits at Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich 7:30 - 10:30pm.

Chuck's true art is songwriting. Having a strong appetite for poetic verse he's written at least 300 poems of which about half have been put to music. Yep, driven by the vocals of John, Paul, George & Ringo he's always on the hunt for strong melodies and powerful soul-searing harmonies.
