Michael J. Finn Plays the Sax at the Timbers

Michael J. Finn performs at the Timbers of Shorewood retirement community. Michael J. Finn will play the saxophone for residents and the public in the ballroom at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, at The Timbers of Shorewood, 1100 N. River Rd., Shorewood.

Known as the “Sax Player with a Great Voice,” Finn will perform favorite songs from the ‘20s through the ‘80s. He began playing the saxophone at the age of ten with instruction by Walt Parazaider, a founding member of the famous band “Chicago.”

“I taught myself guitar and piano in grade school and sang lead in a group that I started called ‘The Sound Reaction,’ Finn said. “In high school, my dreams continued to grow musically and by fronting a horn band, ‘The Chosen Few,’ I was able to sharpen my skills in front of larger audiences.”

As Finn continued his musical education in college, he became part of a touring group that played the Playboy Club circuit and large hotel chains. He became a professional disc jockey and traveled the United States. Returning to Chicago in 1984, he got back into live performing and shared stages with many great musicians associated with rock, blues and jazz.

The Timbers of Shorewood is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.

The event is open to the public and admission is free. For more information, call Shelly Goggins at 815-609-0669.
