Django & Friends Open Swing Jam
Tuesday, February 13, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 7:00 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until Thursday, March 14, 2024
The Django & Friends Open Swing Jam happens on the second Tuesday of the month. We get together to play Swing music. The focus is on the swing and gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt, but we welcome other music of that type – jazz standards, Great American Songbook, even Western Swing – just as long as it gets the foot tapping. All instruments are welcome, but the focus is on strings – guitar, mandolin, violin, etc. We play unamplified. If you are looking for a friendly place to play tunes like Sweet Georgia Brown, Lady Be Good, and Sweet Sue, this is it. This music is great fun to listen to as well as to play – you may even find yourself wanting to jitterbug a little! If you are new to Swing music, it is a great venue to learn new tunes and techniques. But be ready – it could get hot!
The Kelly Center Swing Jam is scheduled for the second Tuesday of each month from 7 to 9 PM, and all are welcome.
