Tonight’s Best Bet
There is a whole group of great bands in the area playing an individual take on a music that is hard to classify. You can’t really call it swing or jazz or rock or folk or Romany but it certainly embraces aspects of all those genres plus more. The best purveyors of these combos execute the tunes with style, wit and an amazing lineup of brass, keyboards, strings, percussion and vocalists. A good example of one of these highly original bands would be Those Nights appearing at Triple Crown tonight. Their sound is rich, full and dances around the edges of genius. You have to hear them for yourself to get the full measure of their depth. Oh, also, they’re fun.
