Sarah Gardner with members of the New Black Eagle Jazz Band & special guest Phil Person

Join us for a swingin’ night of dancing with Sarah Gardner with members of the New Black Eagle Jazz Band and special guest Phil Person.

For over forty years, from Symphony Hall to Singapore, the New Black Eagle Jazz Band has delighted audiences worldwide with its infectious, soulful and uplifting style of traditional New Orleans jazz. Paying homage to the greatest musicians of the early jazz era- Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington -the band has also developed its own eclectic sound, incorporating spirituals, 1920’s and 30’s popular music and even some songs recorded by Elvis and Bob Dylan!

Widely-recognized as one of the premier traditional jazz bands in the world, the Black Eagles enjoy performing in a variety of settings, from intimate pubs to huge concert halls.  With a Grammy nomination to their credit, a vast repertoire, seven inspired musicians, and a highly entertaining stage manner, it’s no wonder that the New York Times has noted that the Black Eagles are “So far ahead of other traditional bands…there is scarcely any basis for comparison.”

Lesson (included w/ price of admission): 8:00pm – 9:00pm

Elise Roth and her Harvard Squares

Elise Roth and her seven-piece Orchestra the Harvard Squares encapsulates the spirit of the Swing Era. Often compared vocally to Judy Garland Elise embraces the resemblance. You’ll hear plenty of Judy’s repertoire expressively sung by Miss Roth. Loved by dancers and jazz enthusiasts alike, this ensemble is led by vocalist Elise Roth, the “poster girl” for the vintage music and dance scene in Boston and beyond!

Dancing: 9:00pm – 12:00am
