Jazz in the Longbranch Lounge

March 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Join the Eddie Piccard Quartet in the Longbranch Lounge for an evening of jazz music.

There are two weeks left in the fish fry season–which means that for two more weeks we will open our Friday evenings with the salad bar in the middle of the dance floor. It’s a little daunting, but we have had some intrepid dancers find space at the end of the salads.

We have been trying to think of appropriate song titles–things we might play to fit the occasion. So far there are two favorites: “Lettuce Entertain You” and “The Beet Goes On.” Please send us whatever titles you think of that might work. Don’t worry about the song. We just need the titles.

This Friday (3/18) in our Second Set we plan to take the Quartet south–into sunnier climes. We’ll play “Is It True What They Say About Dixie,” some of the New Orleans melodies, anything that comes to mind and represents the land of magnolias. If you have requests, let us know.

Sometime in the future we are thinking about taking the blues to Hollywood. Wouldn’t you like to hear John Wayne sing the blues? Or Jimmy Stewart? We might try some other variations here, too.
