The Butler Parks Hot Serenaders

Category: dances

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, the Butler Parks Hot Serenaders is an early jazz and swing combo in the emergent tradition tradition of jazz music made for dancers, by dancers. Featuring the talents of Robert White (drums), Dan Parshall (saxophone), Jake Robbins-Spevack (guitar), Alex Abdoulaev (piano), Joe Herrera (trumpet), and Lindsay Kelly (vocals), the Butler Parks Hot Serenaders’ repertoire runs the gamut from post-Dixieland standards to arrangements of Artie Shaw’s Gramercy Five swing tunes. Because the Serenaders, particularly Alex and Bobby, are hilariously obsessive about the recordings of Artie Shaw, Count Basie, and Johnny Hodges, expect an engaging night of dancing to a band of virtuoso soloists backed by a rock-solid rhythm section — you know, just like in the olden days!

The band played recently for the beautiful outdoor dance at DCLX 2015, the Washington DC Lindy Hop Exchange Weekend. Check it out!
