The Chicago Playboys first saw the light of day as the back-up band for Chicago blues and soul singer Little Johnny Christian, and the name has been carried forward by two of his former brass men who came together with other like-minded and talented musicians to create a unique Chicago-rooted, horn-heavy sound. The Playboys have now developed into a disciplined unit that is drawing comparisons to James Brown's former rhythm-intensive backing band, and are tearing up packed houses at home and across both seas.
At the Vilar Performing Arts Center, located down the escalator from the ice rink in Beaver Creek Plaza.
