Amy K & The Mezzcats Featuring Cassidy Holden

Category: dances

Mezz (n.): anything supreme, genuine. Ex., “this is really the mezz.”
Cat (n.): musician in swing band. (via Cab Calloway’s 1939 Hepster’s Dictionary.

Amy Kucharik first met trombonist Tim Lewandowski dancing at a Boston Swing Central dance, and the two have been friends ever since. They became musical collaborators over a decade ago and a few years ago founded the Mezzcats along with fellow dancer / pianist Michael Valdez and clarinetist Billy Novick.  Amy and her bands are known around New England for a variety of styles and tempos tailor-made for partner dancers; as Friends With Benefits they have played swing dances at Elm City Exchange and several regional dances. To make this occasion really the mezz, the band will feature BSC favorite guitarist and vocalist Cassidy Holden. These cats will play authentic 1920s and 30s swing with a few modern twists (and a few of Amy’s original tunes) for an evening that’s sure to blow your top!
