Appearing at Hackney's of Palos Hills with the Brass Track Big band, when surveyed, she was the #1 rated repeat guest artist. It would be out of this world to see her appear with The Brass Track Big Band Jazz Orchestra at your venue. Visit Link below:Ava’s Brass Track Orchestra Big Band Vignettes
Please visit her website: to view her previous theater performances, Russian Tour and Mendocino Music Festival performance.
This Orland Park resident will be touring in Russia in October 2012 for the second time in two years. It would be so refreshing

 16.  Suggestions for future concerts at Centennial Park West.
1.It would be so nice to develop rland Park's concerts into something like Frankfort's free Bluegrass Festival which offers two full days of free music with new bands taking the stage 45 minutes. (My family has attended this event in Frankfort since it began last year and it is WONDERFUL!) Since Centennial Park West is in a residential community (and I am a resident), I would suggest one day of music focused on a particular genre (C&W, Bluegrass, Blues, etc.). People can come & go throughout the day. It's a great way to highlight multiple bands!
2.fine the way it was
3.If the sound board could be placed all the way in the back, this way not 'obstructed' view.
4.Good sound systems
5.A sampling of genres. I would have enjoyed the Flat Cats at Centennial Park West. At the other venue I felt a little like being in the parking lot. There seemed to be more atmosphere at Centennial Park West.
6.Have washroom facilities closer.
7.Crown Vics..50's Rock & Roll,Pamela Rose-Windy City, Country/Western,Soul Cookin-Motown,Jay Witcher-Big Band Swing-CTA Chicag music,Domino R&B 70's/80's,Superfecta 60's Motown. Five Guys named Moe,The dancing noodles.Kent Blazy..60's Rock & country..Bur Ridge gets sponsers for the concerts..guess that is why no one has to pay.
8.bring 7th heaven!!! they play all over!!!
9.Look at the bands of the 70s that play in Chicago Ridge and other south suburban towns.
10.During the summer months, I have travelled to surrounding communities to see concerts and like the way Naperville and New Lenox bring in bigger names. As I sat at Pat Benatar in Naperville ($15) ticket, I thought people in Orland would gladly pay a small fee for a more well known band. For that concert alone, the crowd was massive, all paid attendees, and not only did it have community members but so many more who were willing to drive to see someone who they have great memories of in the past.
11.Yes, Bring bigger acts than ridgefest.
12.Until a permanent venue with an acoustically sound stage in place I don't see how an admission could be charged.
I enjoyed both performances - City Light and Hillbilly but the sound for the Hillbilly performance was lost in the wind.
13.All type of Rock Concerts
14.Keep having them, it is great to come out and enjoy the music and the meeting with friends.
15.Local school bands
16.Definitely need a permanent covered structure add 2 dollars to each tax bill....provide bus transportation from
Train station like 179th wolf would ease parking and charge maybe 2 dollars....charge residents but double for
Non residents....thank you for letting residents input !!....seniors ride and get in free
17.i like the way shows r presented now. i would like to see a two or three song set of local artists preceed main show as a way of ackowlaging our own talent locally.
18.The Neverly Brothers. Ive seen them several times and they draw a big crowd.
19.Various Big Band Jazz & Swing Orchestra's from the Chicagoland Area.
20.Ava Logan Jazz Ensemble See Ava is terrific!
22.have a later start time due to the heat of summer----7:30-8:00 start
23.Peter Oprisko band does a fabulous job with music from the Rat Pack era(Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, etc). My wife and I have seen him at Summer concerts in Frankfort and Tinley Park. We first saw him a couple years ago when he performed at the grand opening for the Meijer store in Orland.
Teddy Lee Orchestra is excellent, too! They are based in Joliet, but we have seen them perform at the Willowbrook Ballroom in Willow Springs, the Summer concert series in Schaumburg, and every year at the City of Chicago's Summer Dance in Grant Park.
24.Peter Oprisko
25.Peter Oprisko
26.You should really get Peter Oprisko and his band! He is so good that he sings the National Anthem for the White Sox and tours all over the country, but he actually lives in Orland! We really enjoy his music!
27.You'll be very pleased with Peter Oprisko. He performed for our foundation's annual fundraiser and was a huge hit.
28.Peter Oprisko Big Band
29.The Peter Oprisko Band, The Ted Lega Band
30.Sitting in the back areas you can't hear the music. You need some speakers in the back area. Also suggest some landscaping be done, trees, etc...
31.Peter Oprisko
32.Wilco, Heart, classic rock bands, Natalie Merchant, orchestras, etc...
33.See the lineup for a typical year for Franforts Concert on the Green. They get a good mix of different musical eras. That way it appeals to everyone eventially.
34.You can't go wrong with the Peter Oprisko Orchestra!
35.More country, dance , Feel Good/ Party Mix
36.I would pay(and have paid) to see Peter Oprisko and his band perform around the area. He played at the 75th anniversary of the Orland Park library to a packed house, and he plays all over the country! He would definitely give your series a boost!
37.More food and wine venders.
