NYC-based hot swing jazz band The Hot Sardines will perform timeless classics and original tunes on Friday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. Masks are required.
The performance is sponsored, in part, by Jazz at Bucknell, Martha and Alan Barrick, and Coldwell Banker Penn One Real Estate.
All attendees are asked to bring a canned food item, which will be distributed to local families in need through Union County Children and Youth Services.
This raucous Christmas celebration features timeless classics and original tunes performed by the eight-piece Hot Sardines.
Songs will include “La Noel de la Rue,” “Mistletoe & Holly,” “Please Come Home for Christmas,” “Blue Christmas,” “Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney,” “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” “Christmas Blues,” “White Christmas” and “White Cliffs of Dover,” among others.
Fueled by the belief that classic jazz feeds the heart and soul, The Hot Sardines are on a mission to make old sounds new again and prove that joyful music can bring people together in a disconnected world.
The Hot Sardines have released two albums on Universal Music Classics to rave reviews and earned a No. 1 slot on the iTunes jazz chart in the United States and internationally.
