House of the Black Gardenia

House of the Black Gardenia

Saturday 13th May at 7:30pm (Doors and bar open at 7:00pm)

Born of the desire to get their city’s dancefloors swinging to the lesser-known roots music of the 1920s and ’30s, House of the Black Gardenia brings together the new generation of Newcastle’s jazz and swing scene for a raucous revival of old-fashioned good times. Expect stride piano, ragtime banjo, Sousa bumps, blistering New Orleans-style horns and infectious swing rhythms more potent than a bathtub full of gin. Formed in 2014, HOTBG are nine musicians steeped in jazz roots, big band swing and rhythm and blues.

With a fine knack for filling the city’s dancefloors with super-retro roots music, the group party like it’s 1929 – Narc Magazine
