Grace Street Seven is the featured entertainment of the night!
VINTAGE JAZZ FROM THE 1920’S-1930’S
Jay Brown’s Grace Street Seven is a vintage style Jazz Septet that performs songs in the tradition of early 20th century dance bands from the 1920s-1930s. These dapper gents specialize in playing Victrola record transcriptions of Jazz Age classics from the likes of Al Bowlly, Fletcher Henderson, Ray Noble and Irving Berlin.
Hailing from Richmond Virginia, where Grace Street was the center of music, shopping and nightlife in the Roaring Twenties– the name chose itself. The instrumental line-up includes trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, tenor banjo, piano, upright bass and percussion/drums. Full of sophistication and exuding the nostalgia of early American Jazz, expect a dapper yet cheeky performance with a few fun surprises. Grace Street Seven is sure to get your toes tappin’!
