The night the music died...
CHARLIE'S COFFEE HOUSE was sold on July 09, 2007. It is no more.
(It is now a restaurant called Gilson's, with no live music. We wish the new owners well.)
In the meantime, keep subscribing, keep checking us out and if everything goes well, I hope to be able to offer a new and unique music venue, sometime early in 2008.
I am also planning a concert in the spring which will feature 12-15 of the very best musicians who ever stepped onto CHARLIE'S stage. All proceeds from that concert will go to the Kira Arney Fund at CHILDRENS'S MEMORIAL HOSPITAL. Monies raised are specifically directed towards pediatric cancer research. If you have already donated to that cause, you will get first crack at the tickets when they are offered. If you would like to make a donation, or are interested in learning more about the Kira Arney Fund, please go to:
I can not express enough, my gratitude to all the fine people who supported CHARLIE'S, for the three years we were in Wilmette. And my most sincere appreciation to the great musicians who graced our small stage. They, and you, all made CHARLIE'S a better place. Thank you all so much...,
Bob & Charlie
