Chicago’s Legacy Drumline
Terry Ward, Stephen Thompson, and Eli Brown are three of the five musicians in the Legacy Drumline, a percussion group that plays corporate events and cultural functions throughout the city. Their resume includes performances at Loyola University, the Knickerbocker Hotel and the Target store on 87th and Cottage.
When they’re not booked for a show, Legacy likes to play for people on Michigan Ave, 99th and Halsted, and 79th and State. “That’s where most of our material got originated,” says Eli. “That’s when we really started learning each other’s talent.”
