Friday Swing: Sweet Meg and the Wayfarers Live!
We've got a lot of extremely excellent Jazz music lined up for you in October. On Friday, Oct 13 we will host Sweet Meg and the Wayfarers, an extraordinary group. Drop in beginner lesson at 8, dance at 9. $15/$10 for students.
Sweet Megg and her wayfaring musicians will transport you, not to the past but to a new world of their own making. The band is lead by the charmingly enigmatic Sweet Megg, who imbues each song with her own concoction of melancholy and euphoria that will delight you, surprise you, and break your heart all at once. The band seamlessly incorporates elements of New Orleans Swing, Harlem swing, Parisian cabaret, and gut bucket blues into one charming musical performance. Saxophonist Ryan Weisheit reimagines a world where Sidney Bechet, Lester Young, and Charlie Parker blow side by side. Together Sweet Megg, Ryan, and all the Wayfarers create a world where jazz is alive and well and living in New York.
