The Opportunity

A family-run and operated establishment has been a staple in the Chicago and Berwyn music scene since 1980 and has launched the career of countless artists. We're currently looking to book artists for our calendar.

Located in downtown Berwyn, FitzGerald's is located about 10 minutes from Chicago on the Eisenhower Expressway (Hwy. I-290) and is conveniently located just six blocks from the Forest Park Blue Line stop at Oak Park Ave!  Fitzgeralds prides itself on presenting diverse live shows six nights and week and is also known for a huge food and drink menu. Known for its eclectic musical line ups and occasional celebrity visits from some of the biggest names in the music industry, this is an amazing opportunity to play one of the midwest most legendary stages. 

We are looking for Sonicbids artists to come play for smaller groups and private events hosted at FitzGerald's!
