String Swing, Jazz and Blues: Skiffle Band Music from the 20's and 30's
by Steve Scott

The work shop would involve demonstration and jaming with some background info on this type of music thrown in. Mostly focusing on having fun with it.

Quake City is a four person band performing 20's - 40's swing and pop tunes with some blues and novelty numbers here and there to make things interesting. The band has been together for at least ten years in some form or another. The instrumentation is guitar, mandolin, accordian, blues harmonica and bass. We also feature our fabulous tap dancer: Natasha Tuttle!

We would do a similar work shop to last year's focusing on the form and fun of early jazz and swing with lots of participation by workshop "attendees".
