First Thursday? Uptowner!

Did you see the Shepherd last week? Tea Krulos wrote a glowing review of the ECBB and their Thursday night shows at the Uptowner, titled "The Extra Crispy Brass Band's Hot Jazz".  Trombonist Greg Kramer gives a shout out to the (now Grammy-winning) Rebirth Brass Band he used to hear regularly when he lived in NOLA. (I'll admit, I'm a little jealous.)

We "swing-dancing friends" even get a quick mention in the article: 
"The most exciting audience members to watch are the band's swing-dancing fans. They sometimes offer free dance-step lessons before the show and then perform some ballroom-sized moves in the Uptowner's modest space."

Meet Henry and I between 7:45 and 8:30 for a mini-Charleston lesson; band begins at 8:30.

See their Facebook event for more info.  Hope to see you at the Uptowner on Thursday.
