The Billie Holidays
January 26, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
The Billie Holidays pay tribute to Lady Day’s music and the era in which she made her mark on pop music forever. The iconic vocalist’s repertoire is rendered both instrumentally and vocally with great care given to details of the performance style of the day. Stride pianos, sentimental trombones, and vibrating saxophones dance through the airwaves in celebration of the golden age of songwriting. Savvy to dancers’ needs, the Holidays keep it cooking at a medium pace, and spike the music with head-nodding riffs and recreations of classic dance floor arrangements. Bandleader Michael Gamble’s 15-plus years in the international swing dance and music scene inform every aspect of the band’s repertoire and taste.
