Top of the Tower Thanksgiving.
Otter presents an all-out fun and funky pre-Thanksgiving party Friday, Nov. 22 on Willis Tower’s 99thFloor featuring a live jam band, buffet, beverages, art and crafts.
John Kadlecik – guitarist and founding member of Dark Star Orchestra, currently of Furthur – and Steve Molitz (Particle, Phil and Friends) will be joined by guitarist Scott Metzger (Particle), drummer Allen Aucoin (Disco Biscuits) and bassist Clay Parnell (Brothers Past) to perform as an impromptu all-star jam band.
With spectacular 360-degree views of Chicago’s night sky as its backdrop, the band will lay down three solid hours of improvisational funk, blues and jazz grooves among covers of its legendary predecessors, The Grateful Dead.
Admission includes a light Thanksgiving-style buffet and open bar. Misha Esterkin will be live painting, and local handmade goods and jewelry vendors will sell their wares. In the spirit of holiday giving, a charity auction featuring band memorabilia will benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Tickets, $100, will sell out fast.
