Swing with String Theory — Jul 11, 2010 at 7:30 pm
In the tradition of the swinging jazz combos that took Europe by storm in the early twentieth century, String Theory recreates a sound that never really went out of style. With two acoustic guitars, violin, upright bass, baby grand and female vocalist, the sextet takes on Django Reinhardt, Nat King Cole, Benny Goodman, Hoagy Carmichael, and others. The band is made up of seasoned local players with a wide range of experience. Surprise guest artists.
