Saturday, Jan. 14 at 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Vermont’s hottest hot-club style quartet Swing Noire makes a return to Brandon Music Jan. 14, 7:30 p.m. Great energy, soul, sophistication, and improvisation are the hallmarks of a Swing Noire performance.
Swing Noire plays gypsy jazz in the tradition of Django Reinhardt & The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Some call it gypsy jazz, some hot swing; in either case it is acoustic music in the spirit of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Swing Noire invokes the energy of a swingin’ jazz club, transporting audiences back to the early days of jazz with their unique take on hot swing. If you haven’t heard this music, especially live, you are in for a treat.
Violinist David Gusakov, twins Rob and Jim McCuen on guitar and double bass, and guitarist Jim Stout make up this tight acoustic quartet. Swing Noire has performed at the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, Burlington’s First Night Celebration, The Town Hall Theater in Middlebury, Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, and many other venues throughout New England and Vermont.
Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247-4295 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations or more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon.
