Southern Roots Dance Party Benefit for Brattleboro Women's Chorus

  • Vermont Jazz Center 72 Cotton Mill Hill Brattleboro VT 05301 (map)

Sunday, April 7, three of Brattleboro’s signature southern music roots ensembles will join forces to provide the musical soundtrack for a special dance party, to benefit the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus, and to celebrate the birthday of BWC director Becky Graber, 5 - 8 pm at the Vermont Jazz Center.

First up will be Bayou X, playing traditional and original Louisiana Cajun and Creole Zydeco music, incorporating New Orleans R&B and 2nd Line standards, as well as an eclectic mix of tunes from all over the Afro-Creole musical diaspora.

Second up, the VJC Samba percussion ensemble, SOVESA, will play a set of samba rhythms summoning up the spirits of the great nation and people of Brazil.

The evening will be closed out with a set from the Celebration Brass Band of VT, celebrating both the historical and the contemporary sounds of the New Orleans brass band musical tradition.

This will be a non-alcoholic event, with light snacks, sweet and savory, and non-alcoholic beverages served. Suggested donation, $10 - $50.
