We are excited to welcome Seattle guitarist and bandleader Greg Ruby to the Rent Party stage, who will be leading a quartet for our dancing feet! Who is Greg Ruby, you ask?
Described as “Seattle’s premier hot guitarist,” by Earshot Jazz Magazine, his most recent record, Syncopated Classic was awarded the “Golden Ear Award” in the Northwest Recording of the Year category.
Greg plays at swing dances, concert halls and festivals including the French Quarter Festival, Lindy Focus, DjangoFest and the NW Balboa Festival. Greg’s most recent ensemble, the Greg Ruby 6 performs the compositions and arrangements of swing guitar legend Oscar Alemán.
Joining Greg will be special guest Dennis Lichtman from New York, whose reputation as a hot jazz clarinet and fiddle player precede him as he travels the world while continuing to lead New York’s preeminent hot jazz jam at Mona’s every Tuesday night as part of Mona’s Hot Four.
8 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. – dance in The Lindy Lab back studio (with the orange door frame) at Triangle Dance Studio and spillover into Studio 4.
Admission is pay-what-you-can with a suggested donation of $15.00.
