Description: Shapiro adds a little Yiddish flavoring to a distinctly American music that thrived in the 1930s and 40s: hard-swinging jump blues. Vocal powerhouse Cilla Owens lends her talents to this eclectic mash up of Jewish novelty songs and jazz. Dance lessons are at 6:30. The band starts at 7 pm.
