The Hot Sardines are coming to the Straz Center on Saturday January 23rd! "The Hot Sardines' distinctive recipe for making musical magic includes a blustery brass lineup layered over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano Fats Waller-style virtuoso. Tied together with a riveting front woman who sings in English and French, with a voice reminiscent of the Golden Age of hot jazz, this sizzling gumbo of sound fuses musical influences from New York, Paris, and New Orleans, and tours with its own tap dancer. Hailed as 'one of the best jazz bands in New York today' [Forbes], the Hot Sardines mix a little Parisian mischief into the rollicking controlled chaos of American hot jazz standards" [Straz Center]. The Straz Center is located at 1010 N MacInnes Place, Tampa, FL 33602 (Phone 813-229-7827). Tickets & Show Info
