Swing Dance with The Mes Amis Trio!
Saturday, April 15th, 2017
  
Start your night off with this dance workshop:
Focus on Swing: Current and classic moves you should know. 6:00-7:15 pm
This month's instructor is Katie Tranzillo. Tranzillo has been studying and dancing different styles of swing all over the country since 1998. She has been teaching, DJing and building a strong swing dance community in Maine since 2009. 
    
Now you are ready to dance! 7:30-10:00 pm
Swing Dance with the Mes Amis Trio! 
Mes Amis is a jazz trio playing an infectious mix of traditional Gypsy, Latin and American jazz standards along with many original compositions. They will be bringing you a swinging sound you will love to dance to. 
   
The band is led by guitarist, vocalist and composer Steve Lynnworth. Backing him up are friends Harry Richter on guitar and Wells Gordon on upright bass. Harry provides "La Pompe," the steady backbeat typical of the style, while Wells delivers an authoritative thump as he holds down the bottom. Both Harry and Wells are capable soloists as well - and Wells is awfully quick with his bow when necessary! 
  
Appealing to listeners young and old alike, the insistent rhythms, bouncing bass lines and sweetly intricate melodies are easy on the ears, and yet can stand the scrutiny of an aficionado. As it was so aptly put by Rich Tozier, host of MPBN Radio's Jazz Tonight, "Who couldn't like that?"  Listen here! 
  
Don't miss this special night!

She sings, she dances, she teaches, and she has her own band, Jan Marie and her Mean Reds!
