8/24 THE RED SKUNK BAND @ CICADA CLUB

THE RED SKUNK BAND DEBUTS AT THE CICADA CLUB
SUNDAY, AUGUST 24, 2014

Based out of California and New Orleans, The Red Skunk Gypsy Swing Band is swingin’, spontaneous, spunky, and exceedingly entertaining. Drawing inspiration from the styles of Django Reinhardt, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, as well as more contemporary influences, the Red Skunks cultivate a fresh and unique sound that honors and expands upon their jazz roots.

In addition to the time-old classics, the Skunks generate original compositions that fuse sounds from the early eras of jazz with various iterations of indie music. By performing a mix of material written from both the early 20th and 21st centuries, the Skunks have the distinct ability to attract a diverse audience, and expose younger people to early jazz.

As such, they command a mature, inimitable style that is amazing both for its intimacy and raw energy.

Jazz newspaper, The American Rag calls the Red Skunk Band “must-have” and Sacramento Talent Magazine emphatically declares, "Entertainment is their specialty..." and "...the talent is fantastic." This group of young musicians is able to bridge the gap between hot jazz and more modern music, satisfying audiences of all ages.

Doors open 6:00pm - Showtime 8:30pm.
