Lace up your dancing shoes and get ready to swing with the Junius Courtney Big Band and Denise Perrier at the Freight! The 19-piece band, founded in 1963 when the late trumpeter Junius Courtney moved to the Bay Area from his native New Orleans, is celebrating its 50th anniversary season and the release of a new album. Led by Junius’s son Nat Courtney behind the drum kit, directed by George “Jazzbeaux” Spencer on trumpet, and featuring special guest Denise Perrier on vocals, the band brings its impressive jazz chops to swing and blues classics as well as exciting originals. Grab a partner and swing your way to a great Saturday night. Single members encouraged to attend. My dance steps are pretty basic so I'll be improvising along the way but you can't beat the music for a great night.
