“Jesters of Jive” with Joan Crowe – Swing & More!
Thursday, July 26th
7:00 – 8:30 pm
Huguenot and Lawton Streets, New Rochelle 10801
Known for her infusion of mirth into jazz music, Funny Jazz Chick, Joan Crowe has assembled some of New York’s hippest jazz cats into an unforgettable ensemble. This New York City band is influenced by the jump-jive and swing bands of the 1940’s including Count Basie, Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and The Dorsey Brothers. The Jesters of Jive incorporates professional jazz dancers to inspire and impress, and a Louis Armstrong mimic to create an experience right out of the 1940’s golden age. A fabulous blend of East and West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Jump-Jive and Jazz!
