Chicago Jazz Musician Justin Hayford at Davenports Benefit Jan 20 and 27th

How cool is this?  Last month we told you about the Justin Hayford benefit CD – now there is a benefit show!

Chicago Jazz Musician Justin Hayford Plays Gershwin at Davenport’s
Fourth annual benefit for AIDS Legal Council of Chicago

            On January 20th and 27that
Chicago musician Justin Hayford will host “The Gershwins in Love,”
evening of classic Gershwin love songs—from the sublime to the
ridiculous.  This is the fourth annual benefit for AIDS Legal Council of
Chicago (“ALCC”) at Davenport’s Piano Bar in Wicker Park.  Hayford, who
just released his fourth studio album on December 1, will treat
attendees to well-loved Gershwin hits like I’ve Got a Crush on You, ’Swonderful, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, They All Laughed,  and Someone to Watch Over Me.  Fans should also be prepared for a few rarities that few have ever heard.  Hayford has been called “a superb talent” by the Chicago Tribune and a “hip piano-playing saloon singer who should be heard more often” by Rex Reed.

proceeds raised from “The Gershwins in Love” shows go directly to AIDS
Legal Council of Chicago.
  Attendees simply pay whatever they like at
the end of the show.

Reservations can be made online at or by phone at 773-278-1830
