Jan Marie & the Mean Reds

Local dancer and songstress Jan Marie and her four piece band, the Mean Reds, are coming back to the Whistle Stop on April 25th!

Since she made her Boston Swing Central debut last year, Jan Marie has been featured in the Boston Globe and Boston Phoenix for her excellent singing and vintage fashion sense. As an experienced dancer, she knows what we want more than we know what we want! We have a pretty good feeling that Jan Marie and the Mean Reds will keep us dancing all night long as she has during her previous gigs with us.

Lesson (included with admission): 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dancing: 9:00pm – 12:00am
General Admission: $15
Students & Seniors: $13

Baby Soda Jazz Band

Baby Soda Jazz Band makes their BSC return and we are thrilled to have them! Baby Soda gets every dancer dancing, every foot tapping, and every hand clapping throughout their performances, which are best known for the uptempo style of street jazz. “With an eclectic set of influences ranging from 30’s era swing, New Orleans jazz, and southern gospel. The ensemble doesn’t desire to recreate the past, rather they bring the concept and joy of the music to the present.”

Since they are based on New York and wildly popular, seeing them in town in Boston is a great treat so come on out and dance with us!

Here they are with “Shimmy Like My Sister Kate” from a 2012 gig with us!

Lesson (included in the price of admission): 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dancing: 9:00pm – 12:00am
Admission: $17
Students and Seniors (with Valid ID): $15

Emily Asher’s Garden Party

Emily Asher and her group of all star musicians, Garden Party, bring their style of red hot trad jazz back to the Whistle Stop this week! While Emily and her sassy style of trombone playing may look familiar from her many other appearances at the Whistle Stop with the likes of Baby Soda and others, leading the Garden Party brings out the best in Asher, whose vocals and trombone take front and center in this ensemble.

The Wall Street Journal called Asher “red hot” and “very exciting” and we could not agree more!

Check out their version of “Struttin’ With Some Barbeque” at the Whistle Stop from back in February.

Lesson (included in the price of admission): 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dancing: 9:00pm – 12:00am
