8th Annual Dudefest
8th Annual Dudefest
Saturday, August 25th, friends and family of Bree Creevy will host the 8th Annual Dudefest, a benefit concert for Misericordia.


The primary goal of the night is to support the programs that enrich the lives of the more than five hundred and fifty children and adults who call Misericordia home. All proceeds from the event go directly to Misericordia.

Misericordia supports children and adults with mild to profound developmental disabilities from all racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.

Our sister and cousin, Bree, has been at Misericordia for eight years and she loves her home. Misericordia is an incredibly well-kept, well-cared-for place that provides respect and kindness to everyone who lives there. And the way to keep it going is through support.
This year’s Dudefest will be held outside The Hideout – a beloved prohibition-era bar located between Wicker and Lincoln Park – and will feature performances that will blow the roof off! Wait, the roof is already off! So - blow the leaves off the dang trees!

* the unforgettable TITAN BAND!
* Ahhh, Portuguese love songs with OS PALS -- dreamy
* the SOUTH SHORE DRILL TEAM -- y'all, get ready to be dazzled!
* lyrical, mesmerizing BRONTË FALL!
* PLATFORM 29 -- what, what!
* behold! GENE & THE GEORGETTIS! hot hot heat!
* the marvelous and melodious CLEMENTINE O'CONNOR CREEVY of Cherry Glazerr!

And we guarantee Emcee Adam Voss will make you giggle.

Of course, no Dudefest would be complete without the FAMILY BAND!

Brontë fall
Brontë fall
Brontë Fall is a musical potion of edgy pop-rock, Americana, and band founder Teri Bracken’s classical music training. Already an orchestral violin player, keyboardist, and vocalist, Bracken craved the rawness of Americana roots music and the aching beauty of traditional fiddle tunes. When she fell in love with the craft of songwriting, all the pieces fell into place. Traveling the country from Boston to New York to Nashville, and then back to her hometown of Chicago, Bracken set in writing songs that were unedited, honest, modern, and, at times, impolite. Outspokenly feminine and reminiscent of the Brontë sisters, who dared to have a voice in a time when women didn’t, Bracken’s voice has come to boldly define Brontë Fall.

Brontë Fall’s debut album, Silhouette Dances, allows all of the influences of Bracken’s personal journey to seep through as she continues to pursue this adventure of music and life. Silhouette Dances was released on May 23, 2017.
The Titan Band
The Titan Band
Annie Palomino grew up in a household where music was playing constantly; her father's Summer Music Party can still be heard every July ringing well into the wee hours in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago.

She founded Bandwith as an effort to bring positive experiences into the lives of children who don't often have those resources readily available. Initially begun while Annie was teaching at LEARN Charter School, the program now encompasses 5 schools in the Chicago area; Mrs. Palomino shuttles from one school to the next throughout the week overseeing the musical development of more than 80 students.

Participation in the program allows her young musicians access to an instrument, a weekly private lesson, and a weekly ensemble rehearsal. Mrs. Palomino firmly believes that exposure to music and ensemble playing, are especially beneficial in communities were such programs are not the norm, and hopes to see her program flourish to encompass as many young musicians as possible.

She lives in Chicago, IL with her husband and 3 children, and holds a Masters in Music Education from Hunter College in New York City.
Os Pals
Os Pals live and make music in Chicago. Tona loves Bossa Nova, and Annie humors him from time to time. “We changed our name to Os Pals which is Portugese for Los Pals.”
