Love STYX, REO or Jazz? Head to Oak Lawn!

Hi this is Leslie Harris. I know that Oak Lawn might be a bit of a hike, but if you’re a fan of REO Speedwagon, STYX or jazz, it will be worth a trip.

The Oak Lawn Public Library is hosting an exhibit that’s called Jazz Music Legends of Oak Lawn. Yes, I know that Styx and REO are not jazz. Just read on.

For 25 years, Oak Lawn Community high School hosted one of the biggest high school jazz competitions in the country. You can take a look at pictures and memorabilia from that time that spanned from 1960 to 1985.

AND, included in the exhibit are concert photos from local photographer AJ Roccaforte. He worked with bands who have deep roots in Oak lawn, including REO Speedwagon and Styx.

The Oak Lawn Public library is at 9427 South Raymond avenue, Oak Lawn, 60453, and the exhibit runs through the end of the year. You can find out more about it HERE
