Tongue in Cheek

Date:

Location:Downstairs

Venue:Tongue in Cheek

 

Banjos, fiddles, brass, hot jazz, loose men, clean liquor. Tongue in Cheek specializes in discovering old songs from the days of Tin Pan Alley through the days of Hot Club de France and arranging them in a way that is highly influenced by the New Orleans jazz tradition. The band explores the forgotten parts of old favorites and obscure numbers many have never heard before, bringing to life both tradition and innovation.

From ragtime dances to Mingus and Monk covers to the complete Louis Armstrong repertoire, Tongue in Cheek is paving the way for neo-traditional American jazz.

Enjoy the music associated with artists such as Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Irving Berlin, The Boswell Sisters, and the Mills Brothers!

Cost: $5 at the door
