The amazing Jeremy Loops was recently performing at Schubas in Chicago on his 2nd tour of the USA. As a fellow South African, I felt compelled to support his gig, but my flights were just not working. Sadly, I was due to leave Chicago on the night he was playing.
As I stood glumly in the line to board the plane, there was an announcement that the flight was overbooked. I dashed to the counter and volunteered to catch a flight the next day. In return I received a voucher for $462 and a hotel night. (Thanks South West) and I jumped on the metro in time to hear the gig. Yay!
Listen here to some of his fans raving about the music.
