Swing Dance with Abbie Gardner and The Craziest Dream Band
Join us as we transform South Presbyterian Church’s Fellowship Hall into a Swing Dance Hall, featuring Abbie Gardner and The Craziest Dream Band! We’ll also have instructor Barbara Antes, joined by a number of top swing dance demonstrators from of Westchester Ballroom Dance Studio, to teach novice dancers some moves. Best known as one-third of the female harmony Americana trio RED MOLLY, Abbie Gardner’s first full-length recording, My Craziest Dream is an album of jazz standards featuring her father, Dixieland trombonist and swing jazz and stride pianist Herb Gardner. The record earned her an entry in the 2009 Hal Leonard book The Jazz Singers, the ultimate Guide and she is pleased to perform selections from that record, along with other standards, with her band. Herb Gardner introduced Abbie to one of her favorite vocalists, Billie Holiday, and continues to be a big influence on the musician she is and strives to be. The Craziest Dream Band also includes Barry Bryson on trumpet, Craig Akin on bass, and Joel Arnow on drums.
