51. Lucky Strikes Jazz and Swing
Do you love classic jazz and swing music from the '40's and '50's? The Friends of the Georgetown Library has arranged for this talented band to perform for free in the library lobby this Sunday, Feb. 20th.
The Lucky Strikes have been performing together for 13 years and will be doing vocal and instrumental versions of standards and some of their own music composed in the same style. They are a full time professional lounge, swing and jazz band from Austin, Texas. Selections include many favorites by Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Chet Baker, Count Basie and Duke Ellington. They have released three CD's and toured throughout the U.S. and Canada performing in almost every state.
I love the imagery that the name "Lucky Strikes" invokes. The '40's and '50's were the wartime and post-war years when everyone smoked, drank and it was the birth of "cool". That's why I am including this photo of Santa lighting up with a Lucky Strike cigarette. We didn't have Surgeon General warnings about smoking yet and advertising ruled!
I love these live musical performances at the library because they are casual and intimate. You may come and go or sit down and enjoy the entire performance. So fire up The Lucky Strikes this Sunday! Free is always good.
Be there or be square!
