Skinny Tie Jazz
Sunday, October 20 @ 4 p.m.

We’ll have Fran Einterz, a Coupeville farmer (Jenne Farm), on bass and Brad Thomas, a retired physician (and IC Health Officer), on keyboard. They combine their dubious musical talents to present a mixture of jazz standards and not so standards. Both have been playing instruments for over 60 years.

"We've been playing together for 7 years," says bassist Einterz, "and it seems like 70... I still never know where Brad is going to go with a song - sometimes he leads with a kazoo solo, sometimes he sings, sometimes he plays a song in Fb and I just have to fake it. Once at a Bar Mitzvah I'd had so much Manischewitz that we actually played two different songs at the same time. No one seemed to notice.

You know, it's jazz, baby."

The Hot Club of Troy
Saturday, October 26 @ 7 p.m.

HotClubofTroy2.jpg

The Hot Club Of Troy plays music in the style of the renowned Quintet of the Hot Club of France, and its legendary leader: guitarist Django Reinhardt. Reinhardt, along with the immortal violinist Stéphane Grappelli created a genre sometimes called Gypsy Jazz, Gypsy Swing, Manouche Swing, or just plain Django Music. The Hot Club of Troy’s music swings with a wild abandon that allows sparkling melodies to rise from the pulsing rhythm guitars and bass. Guitarist Troy Chapman, deeply versed in the playing style of the great Gypsy guitar master, introduces audiences to the grooving dance tunes and the haunting melodies of an earlier time that sound as joyful and fresh today as the day they were written. Joined by the outstanding musicianship of guitarist Keith Bowers and bassist Kristi O’Donnell, The Hot Club of Troy will leave you enthralled, inspired and tapping your toes.

Music from 7-9pm. Outdoor seating as well.
