Kind of a Big Deal: Michael Gamble’s Rhythm Serenaders with Gordon Webster

Category: dances

Get ready for an outstanding Friday night dance to kick off Boston Swing Central’s fourth annual Kind of a Big Deal Weekend!

Tonight, experienced bandleader, Michael Gamble leads his hard-swinging band along with celebrated ‘King of Swing’, New York pianist Gordon Webster!

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 1930′s and 40′s, paying homage to the small groups of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Lionel Hampton, Roy Eldridge, Illinois Jacquet, and other artists that mastered the small group sound from the dawn of the Swing Era ’til it’s sunset. 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! http://www.rhythmserenaders.com/

Pianist Gordon Webster is one of the most sought after musicians in the lindy hop world. His tremendous musicianship and passion, supported by his first-hand knowledge of social dancing, have inspired lindy hoppers at hundreds of dance events worldwide. Drawing on influences as diverse as Fats Waller, Count Basie, Oscar Peterson and Gene Harris, Webster serves up a smorgasbord of styles unified by one characteristic: irresistible danceability. http://www.gordonwebsterswings.com/
