Happy birthday, Shakespeare. Today we're reminded that not only is all the world a stage, but, sometimes, stages are stages. Observe, the House of Blues last night, where real estate bands including Missing TedSpaklLiquidated Damages, Dr. Bombay and Mad Cow entertained adoring crowds.

Leopardo's Mark Fenton, Rick DuPraw, and Dan Ulbricht, all members of Liquidated Damages (which includes musicians from The John Buck Company  and Grand Kahn Electric). Once these guys towel off and return to the office, Leopardo is working on a 53k-SF MOB for Barrington Orthopedic Specialists  in Schaumburg.

Fifth Third Bank's Charles Krawitz with wife Laiyew, Tishman Speyer's Todd Rich, and Peregrine Group's Ward Feste

We snapped Fifth Third Bank's Charles Krawitz with wife Laiyew, Tishman Speyer's Todd Rich, and Peregrine Group's Ward Feste, who were on the organizing committee. Ward says they've filled House of Blues to capacity the last three years and this year raised close to $300k. Charles says corporate sponsorship was up, too. The same five bands have played for several years, so Ward challenged young real estate, construction, and architecture professionals to step up.
