Smooth jazz king celebrates last week in Chicago

SHARE Smooth jazz king celebrates last week in Chicago

Ghalib Ghallab, the self-proclaimed smooth jazz king of Las Vegas, will be performing for just a few more nights at the M Lounge in the South Loop. He’s here to celebrate the lounge’s 8th anniversary at 1520 S. Wabash. Ghallab was born and raised in Chicago and performed in Vegas for the first time in 1989. His performances at places such as the Jazz Underground and the Aladdin Hotel drew in the likes of Frank Sinatra and James Brown.

The Ghalib Ghallab Experience is entering its last week here, with performances Tuesday through Thursday. Tickets ($20 each) are available at eventbrite.
