Dig out the dancing shoes and glad rags and get down to hear Newcastle’s hottest viper jazz, dirty blues and vintage swing from 9 piece ‘House of The Black Gardenia’.
Born of the desire to get their city’s dancefloors swinging to the lesser-known roots music of the 1920s to 1940s, House of the Black Gardenia brings together the new generation of Newcastle’s jazz and swing scene for a raucous revival of old-fashioned good times.
Writing and playing jazz inspired by music of the early 20th century, expect stride piano, ragtime banjo, Sousa bumps, blistering New Orleans-style horns and infectious swing rhythms to keep you dancing all night long.
Stagger Lee delves into his bottomless record bag of goodies in between sets and Front Porch Three will open with their laid back, rootsy take on classic blues, jazz, country and soul.
What’s life without music and dancing? Its been far too long… see you on the dancefloor!
Ps. This event offers a three tier ticketing system, so you can choose the option that you can afford!
