Live music is waiting for you...

Austin’s Saloon and Eatery offers everything from line dancing to under one roof. Their Fuel Room Bar features nighttime entertainment including live concerts and DJ’s, Trivia nights, Karaoke events and more. The Alley in Highwood is known for its fun atmosphere and Mickey Finn’s Brewery is more than just an award winning brewery, it’s also a great place to catch some live music. Jam out to your favorites with big-name cover bands or find a new up and coming performer. Hang out and have fun with local bands while enjoying a home brewed beer. Downtown Libertyville is alive with nightlife so be sure to take a stroll and find a new favorite restaurant like Firkin, known for its unique menu and recently named one of Chicago Magazine’s Best Chicago Restaurants or 545 North where you can get a creative drink from their unique combination of adult beverages.

Be a part of music history at The Alley in Highwood, a classic music venue where big named bands like REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick and the Ramones have played. These days The Alley features live music five nights a week. No matter if you love rock, hip hop, dance or if you prefer blues, jazz or even jam bands… The Alley has it all.

In the summer months, Ravinia Festival is an absolute MUST do of Lake County! Lay out on a blanket under the stars, and listen to world class musical performances from all kinds of genres. From the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, to some of the biggest names in the music industry, get lost in a perfect summer evening with lit candelabras, a bottle of wine and good friends and neighbors.

Looking for some outdoor live music with a beautiful lake setting? Look no further than Lindy’s Landing in Wauconda on scenic Bang’s Lake. Let the Tiki torches on their sandy beach set the summer mood, while the gentle lapping of the lake keeps rhythm with lakeside live music. Just around the corner is Dock’s Bar and Grill, which is another great place to spend an afternoon or evening outdoors with live music and great food.

Blarney Island is a summertime hot spot and if you’re looking for nightlife, then this is the place for you. Catch the hottest national and local bands throughout their Summer Concert Series, dance the night away to live DJ sets, or even see a drag boat race! Blarney Island is a mile off shore on the Chain O’Lakes, so leave the world behind and head out to “The Key West of the Midwest”.
