LINCOLN SQUARE CONCERT SERIES!!!!! PLEASE JOIN US!

We are so excited for this one. The High Hat Second Line started up at North Center's High Hat Club in 2015. We're all mostly Lincoln Square, North Center, Andersonville, and Ravenswood residents so we're really excited to play for the home crowd. We'll be located in Lincoln Square proper, right outside of Selle Marie on Lincoln Ave. This is a free show. And it's for the kids, too!

Private Event - please read below for details

We're playing a private event for a corporate client on Friday 4/20 but I wanted to give you guys some details about booking us for your next happening.  

The High Hat Second Line is available for a variety of events which we tailor to our clients' needs. We can do our thing, that is, lay down some authentic NOLA funk for your party, or we can dial it back and play some traditional jazz to smooth out a cocktail hour.

We've been known to play crawfish boils, weddings, and we've played some Jazz Funerals for folks whose family is rooted in the tradition.  

Simply, we play music for folks that want to hear it and we play it for you.  Feel free to drop us an email or call when you're planning an event and you want to put some heat on that jambalaya.
