Michael Gamble and the Rhythm Serenaders

Michael Gamble and the Rhythm Serenaders

The Rhythm Serenaders are an aggressively faithful presentation of tightly-arranged, riff-dominated swinging small-group created for a swing dancing public. Careful transcriptions and subtle adaptations of Goodman/Christian Sextet dominate the repertoire, with thoughtful forays into the combo work of Ellington, Basie, as well as some of the later 40’s material put down by Eldridge, especially his time with Artie Shaw. Bandleader Michael Gamble’s 15+ years in the international swing scene inform every aspect of the band’s repertoire and taste.

The Gordon Webster Band, featuring Hannah Gill

Pianist Gordon Webster is one of the most sought after musicians in the Lindy Hop world and we are excited to have him back again at Beantown! His tremendous musicianship and passion, supported by his first-hand knowledge of social dancing, have inspired Lindy Hoppers at hundreds of dance events worldwide. Drawing on influences as diverse as Fats Waller, Count Basie, Oscar Peterson and Gene Harris, he serves up a smorgasbord of styles unified by one characteristic: irresistible danceability.
