On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights we will feature The Gordon Webster Group, with Miss Naomi Uyama on vocals. Gordon is one of the hottest young jazz pianists around, and has become a favorite with swing dancers across the country and around the world. He's rocked the house at SONH for the past four years, and we are delighted to welcome The Gordon Webster Group back again for three nights this summer!
The Rhythm Serenaders is classic small-group swing at its finest. The six piece combo is a hard-swinging dedication to the style and arrangements of the mid-to-late 1940′s, paying homage to the small groups of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Roy Eldridge, Illinois Jacquet, Chu Berry, and other artists that mastered the small group sound, just as Big Band swing was waning in popularity, but before the full-on emergence of Bebop and modern jazz.Bandleader Michael Gamble’s 10+ years of work in every aspect of the global swing dance community informs the band’s repertoire and taste. The music will carry a dance floor all night long, but is just as comfortable in bars, clubs, and setting a classy tone for a private event. Michael Gamble and his Rhythm Serenaders embody the joy and infectious energy of mid-20th century American Jazz!
Our team of DJs will be chosen and led by our esteemed head DJ, Rob Moreland.
