Uptown Swing w/ Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers

Front Room
07:30 pm

BSP Kingston + Uptown Swing Kingston present

a night of hot jazz, dance, and swing with this month’s house band:
Sweet Megg & The Wayfarers! http://www.sweetmeggswayfarers.com/

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 Dixieland, 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.
