Thanks to everyone who came out to last month’s Engine Room. I thought we had a great turnout and great energy! This month we’re excited to bring back GIANT CITY SEXTET to Engine Room! GC6 is one of the premiere trad jazz bands in town featuring Jon Doyle (clarinet), Oliver Steck (trumpet), JD Pendley (guitar), Ryan Gould (bass), Joe Cordi (keys), and Paul Schlichting (drums). Having played for many dance events, I thought it would be natural to bring them to Engine Room a week before the International Lindy Hop Championships in DC. No worries if you aren’t a dancer. These guys can really bring the house down. It’s going to be a great night, and I hope to see you there!
The Engine Room is honored to have the East Side Dandies playing for us this month. In just a few short days you can listen and dance to this talented Austin Jazz Band. The East Side Dandies A modern band playing your favorite hits of the 1920s and 1930s. Normally found playing every Thursday evening at East Side Showroom (Right in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas on East 6th Street. Live music from the band every Thursday from 10PM -1AM), they have branched out and begun playing at several other locations. Known for their danceable jazz music, the East Side Dandies are a favorite to the dancers and jazz enthusists of Austin, Texas.
