Rhythm Serenaders

Bassist Michael Gamble is the organizer of “Lindy Focus” in Asheville, N.C. – one of the major swing dance events in the World.  His Rhythm Serenaders, with an all-star lineup, will perform at the Saturday Night Swing Extravaganza at the 2018 San Diego Jazz Fest. In addition to the leader, the Serenaders will include a number of performers whose names are familiar to swing dancers: Laura Windley, vocals; Corey Gemme, trumpet; Charlie Halloran, trombone; Nate Ketner and Joe Goldberg, reeds; Kris Tokarski, piano; Jonathan Stout, guitar; and Josh Collazo, drums.  

   

In addition to the Rhythm Serenaders, the Festival will present performances by additional bands that the dancers follow: The Mad Hat Hucksters (Upper left), Big Butter JB (upper right),  Sue Palmer and her Motel Swing Orchestra (lower left right), and  the Sweethearts of Swing with High Society (lower right).
