Swing into the NewYear George Cole Quintet

Friday, December 30, 7:30 pm

Join music fans and New Year's revelers as we Swing into the New Year for an evening of elegant and whimsical jazz with the George Cole Quintet from San Francisco.

The night is sure to be a grand way to celebrate the New Year with a cash bar, provided by the non-profit Killer Blues organization, and an afterglow party on the Playhouse stage with the band after the show.

The quintet’s style of music, dubbed “Eurocana”, is a celebration of the great American songbook with inspiration from Gypsy Jazz. The band draws inspiration for their original music from the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris.
