Where: Sprint Pavilion
Acme Swing Mfg. Co. - Swing Dance Swing - Free Show
You do want to dance, don’t you? Sax, clarinet, vocals, guitar, thumpin’ bass, drums and how! The occasional shriek and hysterical scream, from stage or audience, doesn’t matter, it happens. You move, we groove, it’s what you call symbiotic.
Don’t feel like dancin’? Come hear us and pretend you are at a ritzy, sit-down venue. Gaze into your sweetie’s peepers while we provide the soundtrack. Ballads, blues, love songs, we’re all about close listening and have been known to make food taste better, folks act friendlier, and life get swell.
ACME’s powerhouse lineup includes the voice of Mary Beth Revak (and sometimes her body’s there, too) and Carmel Clavin, notorious Teacup Cabaret maven, heavenly Haywood Giles on saxophones, Bob “Bluesman” Driver on guitar, and Jackson "Cookie" Boylan on uke and vocals, Steve "The Animal" Brecker on trumpet, Dan "Cadillac" Sebring on bass and everything else, and, last but not least, Davey Jacobs on percussion.
Embrace your inner hoofer or just come get an earful of C'ville's own ACME Swing Mfg Co. If you're a swanky sister or a regular Joe, when you want the good stuff, they've got the right stuff.
Horns, strings, drums, and a couple canaries bring you the swing to keep up your spirits, and how!
