The Hot Sardines

When: Fri., May 13, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Phone: 810-237-7333
Price: $21 - $42
Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats Waller vein, and tie it all together with a one-of-the-boys frontwoman who sings in both English and French with a voice from another era. The Sardine sound fuses musical influences from New York, Paris, and New Orleans that were nurtured from the Prohibition era through the Great Depression, WWII, and beyond. They carefully manage the delicate balance of showcasing old songs – some of them nearly a century old – without being an “old-timey band”.
