About this Show

Erik and Jessie and Everyone You Know proudly presents: The Best of the Best Band Ever Band. Our House band performs some of the best material from our past year of Variety Shows with some of our favorite guests.

About Erik and Jessie and Everyone You Know: For nearly a century, American entertainment was built on the back of the variety show. Our’s borrows heavily from the musical variety shows of the 70’s. It’s a little Sonny and Cher and a little Fozzie the Bear. We start with a killer seven-piece country/soul band and then add the usual suspects: singers, comedians, magicians. And then we mix in some more novel acts: poetry and improv, diarists and dancers, games, stunts, surprises and the occasional baked good. Over nearly a year of doing the show at our home in Steppenwolf’s 1700 Theatre, and other venues around Chicago, we have developed a growing family - diverse, tight-knit, supportive - which blurs the lines between audience and performer. Come and be a part of it.
