The Lucky 5 is a hard-swinging jazz band that blends swing and gypsy jazz to create a unique, foot-stomping blend of music that appeals to a wide range of music lovers. The Lucky 5 performs both original compositions as well as putting a new spin on old jazz standards. The band is comprised of highly seasoned touring musicians, having been part of The Hunger Mountain Boys, Lauren Ambrose & The Leisure Class, and traveled, performed and recorded with artists such as Peter Gabriel, Tony Bennett, Neko Case, Iris Dement, Bobby Previte, Del McCoury, Jim Lauderdale, just to name a few.

The Lucky 5 brings verve, high energy, and an unpredictable impulse to the tradition of jazz from the 20's, 30's and 40's, grooving deeply, and keeping feet moving on the dance floor. The Lucky 5 is: Kip Beacco (guitar), Will Carroll (drums), Matt Downing (upright bass), Carolyn Dufraine (trombone), and Jonathan Talbott (violin)

This event is part of our Third Friday Swing series at Dewey Hall. Every month a beginner swing dance lesson is followed by a live band and dancing. Follow Oldtone Native on Facebook to keep up to date on all Oldtone concerts, dances, and festivals.
