Bands

Saturday night will be Sweet Spot Combo! They have been wowing dancers at Hale’s Ales, Triple Door Musiquarium, and Third Place Books. Sweet Spot Combo mines its material from the gold that is mid 20th century music. They share a passion for the swing, jazz and popular music of that era. From the Mills Brothers to the Four Freshmen to the Rat Pack and beyond, they love it all. Featured are upright bass, guitar, cocktail drums and three voices that make for a lush wall of sound. A swinging good time is the result.

Stickshift Annie and Kimball and the Fugitives will play for us Sunday evening! Annie’s vocals combine elements of blues and jazz with a unique sultry, sensitive tone. Their repertoire features straight ahead rockin’ roadhouse blues, swing tunes, and smoldering slow burner blues.
