Description: Get ready for Hot Jazz, Dixieland, French Chanson & Gutbucket Blues. The Hot Sardines sound � wartime Paris via New Orleans, or the other way around � is steeped in hot jazz, salty stride piano, and the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Fats Waller used to make: Straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. (Literally � the band includes a tap dancer whose feet count as two members of the rhythm section). They manage to invoke the sounds of a near-century ago and stay resolutely in step with the current age. Bring a lawn chair or blanket.
