HSDS PRESENTS: Michael Gamble & The Gamblers


What: The Gamblers
When:  18 April 2015,  7pm - 11pm
Where: The Flying Monkey Theatre
2211 Seminole Drive

This month HSDS is excited to welcome Michael Gamble and The Gamblers all the way from Asheville North Carolina!

The Gamblers is a good-time dance band that indulges in an eclectic picnic of early American jazz and roots music styles. Their joyous sound basket is filled with a mouth watering collection of musical snacks from artists such as bluesmen Clarence Williams, Robert Johnson and Charley Patton to under-the-radar jazz hipsters like Freddy Taylor and his Swing Men and the Washboard Rhythm Kings. With it’s affinity for easy tempos and vocal-driven, head-nodding, and heavy grooves, The Gamblers are great whether you’re dancing or just doing some old fashioned cavorting and carousing.

Bandleader Michael Gamble’s 10+ years of work in every aspect of the global swing dance community informs the band’s repertoire and taste. The Gamblers embody the joy and infectious energy of early-20th century American Blues and Jazz!

As always there will be a beginner swing dance lesson from 7pm-8pm before the band starts at 8pm.

General Admission is $10 and students are $7.
