Jared Engle of Baby Soda Jazz Band        (4 string banjo)
Sauerkraut Seth of the Wiyos                    (bass)
Allen Livermore of the Limb Shakers      (sax and clarinet)
This will be a night of incredible jazz played by some of the best band leaders from the jazz scene of today! We will here music from the traditional jazz style of New Orleans and many of the swing classics that rule the day in the years that followed.

Prior to the music there will a fantastic workshop by the known and loved Walter and Lauren. For only $5 more, Walter & Lauren Keeley will be teaching an intermediate lindy hop lesson called “Chill out Swingout.” It will focus on swingout variations that allow a dancer to “slow down” the music, enjoy every step, and allow more space for improvisations and musicality.
