And for today’s Barrington Online Marketplace feature, we were excited to get to know more about Deer Park Town Center, the place just voted by our readers as their favorite shopping center in Barrington.  It’s a great time to learn more about Deer Park Town Center because they’ve recently debuted some exciting new events, including a brand new jazz festival coming up from noon to 5 p.m. this August 11th.

The “Jazz Patio Festival” is a FREE outdoor concert which will take place in Deer Park Town Center’s gazebo area by Yankee Candle and GNC.  The circular drive surrounding the gazebo will be closed to traffic and set up with alfresco seating so you can enjoy performances by these four Chicagoland Jazz groups:

Pianist/Singer Judy Roberts (with her quartet)
Judy is best known for her fun-loving approach to an eclectic and extensive repertoire, her hard-swinging piano playing, her ability to combine lush and sensitive vocals with rapid-fire scat singing and for her unique ability to communicate with her audience in a relaxed and intimate style.  (

Vocalist Ava Logan (and her trio)
With her “sophisticated” and “powerhouse voice”, Ava Logan has performed one-woman tributes to some of the leading ladies and legends of jazz, including Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne.  You’ll find Ava performing in clubs and concert halls in Chicago, Los Angeles and Florida and she has also taken her act to Paris and Rome and Moscow.

Spiral Jazz Quartet
Spiral combines some of Chicago’s top musicians into one high powered group led by Chicago Jazz Magazine publisher and drummer, Mike Jeffers.  (Follow on Facebook)
