Taste's Headliners Announced

2006_04_fireworks.gifIt's official - Ray Davies (Kinks) will be back to entertain the masses on the 4th of July during the Taste of Chicago. The others on the bill at the Petrillo Music Shell for Tuesday are Mike Doughty and My Morning Jacket.

Still to be announced are the acts for July 6th and 8th, but we do know that if we brave the crowds we will get to see the following:

June 30th - Chaka Khan
July 1st - Glen Campbell
July 2nd - Jo Dee Messina
July 3rd - Grant Park Orchestra and most importantly, fireworks
July 5th - India.Arie
July 7th - Macy Gray and Liquid Soul
July 9th - Dennis DeYoung and Kenny Wayne Shepherd

Something for everyone - artists to complain about, artists to enjoy and artists that make us say "Wha?" Then again, we just have to remember that it's free. The only cost is to our sanity.
