p.m. Afternoon Concert - Threadgill Theater
a dimly lit nightclub in 1940’s Chicago. Wes
Montgomery, Ray Brown are jamming with Count Basie.
They meet up with Jerry Garcia in a dark alley. Then
things get really smokin’ hot….you might say
they get…SWINGADELIC. Vintage jazz, swing, it’s
hot, sultry, and danceable, influenced by Billie
Holliday, Charlie Christian and Count Basie’s
rhythm section and the 30s & 40s Viper scene.
Well, check it out. Close your eyes and you won’t
believe your ears. Sarah Sharp, vocals (think Billie
Holiday, Ricky Lee Jones, Nina Simone); Slim Richey,
guitar (dangerous); and Francie Meaux Jeaux, upright
bass (think Ray Brown); with a cast of Austin’s
best “Viper” sidemen (& women!).
