Event Description

The 7-piece Easy Street Jazz Band plays Dixieland jazz EVERY TUESDAY @ Zal Gaz Grotto. In July of 2020, the ESJB will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding by the late Paul Klinger. Leader/trombonist Terry Kimura picks familiar tunes from the traditional jazz repertoire and blows the dust off some forgotten gems from Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Walter Donaldson, Hoagy Carmichael and other great composers from the early part of the 20th century. Kimura, Tom Bogardus (cl), Adam Mosely (p), Matt Collar (tr), Paul Keller (bass), Van Hunsberger (dr), and Rod McDonald (gtr & banjo) play great jazz for listening and dancing! ********* EASY STREET BALLROOM DANCE CLASS: Learn to move around the dance floor in a smooth and graceful way, hear the beat, step to the music, lead and follow. No previous dance experience is necessary. Peggy and Bruce Amrine, with 30 years experience, will teach you basic couple dance and how to have fun and look good on the dance floor. 30-minute lesson each week from 5:00 to 5:30pm. The cost of the lesson is included in the cover charge for the band.
