Concert: The Survivors Swing Band at Russell Library

Jules Bashkin of The Survivors Swing Band.

On Saturday, April 22 at 1:30pm in The Hubbard Room of Russell Library, The Survivors Swing Band will be generating energy and excitement as they play classic melodies from the Swing Era for concert goers listening -- and dancing- pleasure! Bring a dance partner, or come with friends and family to enjoy some of America’s most beloved songs.

The band features musicians from all over Connecticut, each with many years of experience. Lauren Humpage is on bass and vocals; Jeremy Alston on drums; Jules Bashkin on alto sax; Greg Butko on reeds; Bill Steinhauser on banjo and guitar; Dave Mechler on trumpet; and Sandra Wittman on piano. Based in Connecticut, the group plays the classic melodies from an era gone by--hot tunes and soothing ballads of the Swing Era--plus many of the wonderful melodies from the two decades that followed.

Families with children are welcome.
