Join HOT JAZZ JAM feat. BENNY & THE GOOD MEN this TUESDAY with Roaring Twenties hot jazz & super fun dancing at ANAF 298!
Keeping the musical traditions of the roaring twenties and earlier-alive! Benny & the Good Men serves as a tribute to the traditional jazz of Chicago and New Orleans, and the later revival of the 1950's. Formed in the last two years under bandleader Ben MacRae, Benny & the Good Men is a throwback to the days of prohibition, and the hot jazz of the great bandleaders such as Sydney Bechet, Edmund Hall, Bix Beiderbeck and the great Benny Goodman. Although the Good Men play the standard hot jazz repertoire, the band also writes original tunes, and is currently preparing for their first recording, to be released by the summer of 2017.
