Jess Godwin

Support acts: Marirose Weldon, Funky Hot Grits

Tickets: $10 general admission, $15 reserved

Honest, unassuming, and passionate, Jess Godwin possesses one of the most dynamic voices both in and beyond the Chicago music scene. Combine the music of Alicia Keys, Sara Bareilles, Norah Jones, and Stevie Wonder, and you get the unique sound of this energetic redhead. Her soul-bearing lyrics will touch your heart, and her music will make you tap your feet and sing along at the same time.

Born in Atlanta, Godwin moved around a lot as a child - 5 states and 10 different schools to be exact! Eventually, Jess and her family finally settled in Chicago. She has been a proud resident of the Windy City for the past 14 years.

She has released four EPs, each one demonstrating her tremendous talent and wide-ranging musical influences: To the Heart of It, Quiet the Room (produced by Jan Smith, vocal coach to Usher, Justin Bieber, The Band Perry), Klutz, and her most recent self titled EP released in November. Godwin's single, Katy's Side, was featured on Keeping up with the Kardashians this summer.

Sunday, July 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Isle of Klezbos

Tickets: $20 general admission, $30 reserved

ISLE of KLEZBOS approaches tradition with irreverence and respect. Based in NYC, this soulful, fun-loving powerhouse all-women's klezmer sextet has toured from Vienna to Vancouver since 1998. Band repertoire ranges from rambunctious to entrancing: neo-traditional folk dance, mystical melodies, Yiddish swing and retro tango, late Soviet-era Jewish drinking song, re-grooved standards, and genre-defying originals. This soulful gal-powered klezmer ensemble has toured from Vienna to Vancouver, with broadcast credits from "CBS Sunday Morning" to "The L Word."

Formed by drummer / leader Eve Sicular, ISLE of KLEZBOS features alumnae of Juilliard, Eastman and Manhattan Schools of Music as well as Harvard, and has been honored with multiple awards by The New York State Council on the Arts, Outmusic, and Sparkplug Foundation.Various Klezbos bandmates have performed in Sicular's musical documentary theater piece J. EDGAR KLEZMER: Songs from My Grandmother's FBI Files, and several also play together in Metropolitan Klezmer (octet formed in 1994). From Seattle's Bumbershoot to St. Louis' Edison Theater to Spiegeltent at Bard, from Vienna's Porgy and Bess to Joe's Pub at NYC's Public Theater, BAM Cafe to Brooklyn Museum's First Saturday, Merkin Hall to Michigan Womyn's Music Fest, National Yiddish Book Center to The Museum at Eldridge Street, Isle of Klezbos tours have lately brought the band to Berkeley Jewish Music Festival, Stanford University, and residency at Skidmore College. Fall 2012 debuts included Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts and our first Southern exposure: Tennessee Tech!

Mayne Stage and Act One Pub are located at 1328 and 1330 W. Morse Avenue in Rogers Park, Chicago.
