UPDATE! For the safety and comfort of everyone, we are cancelling tonight's concert. After looking at the extended radar and consulting several different sources for the weather, it is clear that it will be raining the entire weekend. The forecast for the Bolingbrook/Naperville area calls for thunderstorms accelerating and ramping up in the later afternoon and evening hours with a potential for strong to severe storms with gusty winds and heavy downpours. The peak activity is to occur between 6:00 and 9:30 p.m. which coincides with the concert. For our ticket holders, we will be reaching out to you via email to provide options.
Join us for our first-ever Summer Celebration Benefit Concert with the Big Lagniappe delivering their New Orleans influenced funk, R&B, and jazz. You'll be treated to a beautiful and enjoyable summer evening lakeside complete with food, live music, dancing, and more!
