Chicago, IL – On May 11th, 2019, Chicago musicians unite for a day of photos, landmarks and unity in this, first of its kind free event to photograph the talented individuals who bring music to the Windy City.

Chicago Music Guide will have photographers on site at several Chicago landmarks including (but not limited to) the Chicago Picasso, Chicago Cultural Center and Millennium Park. Chicago Music Guide will photograph (free of charge) individual musicians, bands and coordinate full group shots exemplifying Chicago’s wonderfully diverse musical community in front of Chicago’s famous landmarks.

The idea for this event came to Dennis Kelly while reviewing bands to be featured on Chicago Music Guide and not all of the bands had professional photos to represent themselves with. So, ‘pulling photographers and bands together in one place with Chicago as the most beautiful and appropriate backdrop’ was the solution with the added benefit of allowing everyone to hang out and network.

Photographs will be used to promote the artists on the official Chicago Music Guide site and will be shared via social media with the hashtags #ChicagoMusicianMeetup and #chicagomusic. A photo contest is also in the works for those who take their own photos.

More details of the event to follow, but for now, plan on representing Chicago’s music community by being downtown on May 11th!
