Jazz Schedule

Carmen Stokes Performs!

We are thrilled to announce that the talented and engaging Jazz Artist Carmen Stokes, who performed at Suzette's last spring, is back at Suzette's!

Carmen Stokes entertains patrons on the Baby Grand Piano in our dining room on Friday evenings this fall & winter. Her delightful charm and silky chords are the perfect accompaniment to Suzette's relaxed, French country cuisine.

Fridays: 6:30-9:30 pm

From Classical to Jazz training, Carmen incorporates jazz, gospel, blues, funk, classical and Latin forms into her music. Performing internationally and nationally, she has graced the stage with legendary artist including Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Prince and countless others. Chicago Jazz Legend Ramsey Lewis contacted Carmen to perform his songs at the Chicago Jazz Awards. Her tribute to Lewis commanded a standing ovation and a glowing review from Howard Reich, arts critic for the Chicago Tribune.


Thanks to Judy Roberts!

We enjoyed the intoxicating sounds of Judy Roberts and Greg Fishman on Saturday evenings this past summer and fall! We hope to see you again soon.

Though known by the Chicago Tribune as “Chicago’s Favorite Jazz Woman”, Judy is recognized worldwide for her jazz performances. From her multiple Grammy nominations to international jazz festivals from Singapore to Holland to Monterey, California and Newport Beach, Chicago’s London House will always be her flagship. Every musician and every person who loves music; no matter what genre, needs to experience the music of Judy Roberts. There is no one else like her!

Greg is a star in his own right, performing with Woody Hermann’s Big Band and countless other well- known performers as well as personally acclaimed both nationally and internationally as an artist and teacher. He has multiple recordings, is author to numerous publications and is teacher and mentor to many of the young musicians emerging on the music scene today. Greg is one of the foremost experts on the music of Stan Getz.
