Billy Denk

Billy Denk is a jazz guitarist from Chicago. Billy is founder of Jazz on the Square, a not-for-profit organization which promotes jazz performance and education in northern Illinois. In addition, he is host of the Jazz on the Square Jazz Jam Series which brings top performers together with less experienced musicians. His organization hosts the Woodstock Jazz Festival each August. Initially playing left-handed on an antique Harmony acoustic guitar, Billy switched to righty upon getting his first electric guitar. Soon afterward he played his first professional gig. Early in his development, Billy studied with jazz guitarist and Emmy award winner Andre Caporaso as well as local jazzer George Bolger

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
