FitzGerald's, the Berwyn nightclub known for bringing top musical talent to the western suburbs, has passed the torch on booking duties to longtime FitzGerald's employee Donnie Biggins.

The booking has been run by owner and Oak Park resident Bill Fitzgerald for the last 36 years, but Fitzgerald says in a press release that Biggins will serve as the club's new talent buyer.

"I've landed my dream job," Biggins said. "Bill has been a mentor to me and has taught the ins and outs to the music industry."

The press release notes that Fitzgerald turns 65 in November and is looking forward to retirement.

Biggins performs in The Shams Band and owns the Lincoln Park venue Tonic Room and the music promotion company Harmonica Dunn and runs the annual Dunn Dunn Festival. 

He released his solo album "Profiles" in November 2016.
