Lost in the Sauce

This five-piece swingin’ combo draws on diverse musical experiences and inspirations to deliver a fresh approach to Chicago-style jazz, from classic jazz and swing ballads to riffing jump tunes. Craig Ball plays as hot a BG-inspired clarinet as can be heard anywhere, and Jeff Hughes contributes with his melodic cornet and flugelhorn. Richie Giordano is the area’s prime boogie-woogie pianist, and a top-notch stride stylist. Ken Steiner propels the beat with his imaginative string bass, and Dave Bragdon provides sure-footed rhythm with his creative drumming.

Riverboat Stompers

Boston's own Riverboat Stompers are exciting proponents of New Orleans Jazz. They’re a no-holds-barred crew of foot-stomping devil-take-the-hindmost Katy-bar-the-door lease-breakers. The instrumentation often includes but is by no means limited to trumpet, trombone, clarinet, piano, drums, tuba, banjo, and sometimes fire siren, Klaxon horn, kazoos, etc. The Stompers play the familiar Dixieland oeuvre, expanded with a sprinkling of tongue-in-cheek tender love songs, hand-clapping gospel and stirring patriotic warhorses.

Tickets: $10

Swing X Five

Jeff Hughes (cornet, flugelhorn) heads up this smooth quintet, with the piano artistry of Ross Petot. Ross is a gem in the local music scene. Dan Weiner (guitar), Justin Meyer (bass) and Dave Didriksen (drums) comprise the rest of the very supportive cast. The band's sound is smooth and cool, and sweet & hot! Featured will be special guest, the lovely and swingin' Debby Larkin. Deb sings all around Town and especially with hubby Jeff Stout's quintet.
