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. Chuck and his buddys Dean Milano, Chris Minardi, & James Costanza will be at Carlucci's Restaurant & Bar in Downers Grove on Thursday July 13 and at Mullens Bar & Grill in Lisle on Saturday August 5th. Finally on Friday August 18th, the quartet performs at Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich 7:30 - 10:30pm where, BTW, he'll be hosting the third Thursday "open mic" the previous night August 17th. Just added, Dean, Chris and Chuck will be performing an hour set of music 3-4pm on Saturday August 26th at the Glen Ellyn Art Fair.


Chuck and his partner Al "Vac" Vaccarello make up the acoustic duo BLUE EYED LEO. Performing on six and twelve string guitars as well as keyboard and a little harmonica now and again, they entertain the crowd with "classic rock" standards from such renowned artists as the Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, America and a host of others including current and more recent artists such as Jack Johnson, Zac Brown Band and Snow Patrol to name but a few. In August the duo appears at Cary Country Club in Cary on Friday the 11th, Middleton's On Main in Wauconda on Saturday the 12th, Oasis On Bluff Lake in Antioch on Sunday the 14th, and on Saturday the 26th they'll be at Copper Fiddle Distillery in Lake Zurich.

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.
