Hot Jazz Age Frolic

Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks Kat Edmonson Bria Skonberg DeWitt Fleming, Jr.

Sun, June 16, 2019, 2:30pm


Two of the torch bearers of hot jazz — Vince Giordano and Bria Skonberg — bring their bands to Caramoor with the classic swingin’ jazz of the 1920s and ’30s that will leave you with no choice but to get up and dance! Join us for a dance lesson between the afternoon and evening sets, and bring the kids early for a special family set at 2:30pm by Bria Skonberg’s Hot Five.

“No one else can compete with Mr Giordano in terms of the sheer variety of the music. He can jump from … a red-hot New Orleans-style stomp … to Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes.”
