The best time of the year is here! Christmas with the Speakeasies Swing Band at their annual holiday party, featuring a hot brass section and opening act the best Dixieland band in the country, the Storyville Ragtimers.
The Speakeasies Swing Band travel the world playing Swing, Jazz and Blues, blending America, Dixieland and the interwar era with the Mediterranean and the East.
In their luggage they carry their 4 albums – one of which is a Christmas album. They have shared the stage with leading international musicians, played for Hollywood stars, performed in the theatre, and occasionally turned into a big band, working with brass sections of the country’s finest brass players. With an upbeat – as always! – mood, they present a program with their own and timeless pieces of foreign and Greek repertoire to get us excited and create the right conditions for an authentic music and dance party!
Storyville Ragtimers were formed in Athens in 2015.
Its common references are their love for New Orleans, Storyville (the New Orleans neighborhood where jazz was born), the “sporting houses” of Basin’ Street, “Lulu White” and the “professors” who played there, the “parade” bands with the “second liners” and the Mississippi riverboat bands.
