Andy's Jazz Club Keeping The Music Alive

We raised the first $23K in this GoFundMe Campaign in May/June during the first mandated shutdown that lasted 4 months. Those donations aided our survival of that shutdown and allowed us to reopen on June 26th. We made many accommodations to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while keeping the guest experience a pleasurable one.  Yet our efforts and the efforts put forth by the restaurant industry have not been enough...and we find ourselves in need of assistance yet again.

Sadly, a second forced closure by Governor Mandate has taken effect as of October 30th.  Unfortunately, we have to fear for the worst in that this closure will extend for many months and we need your help.  We need your help to make it through this second forced closure in hopes to survive into 2021.

We need your help to keep the club from permanently closing due to this pandemic.  Your donations will make a difference in our ability to continue to present live jazz music at Andy's Jazz Club.  Since 1975 the Chisholm family has owned and operated Andy's, presenting top Chicago jazz artists, dining and merriment along the way.  That's 45 years!  We are not ready to see this run end and need your help.
