October 20: Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints

Dancers cheered the music of Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints at Dancing til Dusk and the North City Jazz Walk. We are excited to have them play for the first time with Northwest Dance Network at the Leif Erikson Hall.

Born out of a love of the early years of swing, Americana and rock ‘n ‘roll, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints is a band whose sound transports you to the time of speakeasies, honky-tonks and roadhouses. With upright bassist and vocalist Birch Pereira at its center, the band features skilled and versatile musicians who share the love of music with the dancers.  Expect to enjoy Swing at different tempos and some sultry Blues.
