In the hot jazz movement, The Hot Sardines stand apart for the innovation, verve and sheer joy they bring to music, both new and old. In the talented hands of the New York-based ensemble, music first made famous decades ago comes alive through their brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and vocals from a chanteuse who transports listeners to a different era with the mere lilt of her voice.
“The arts help us understand ourselves as human beings. If you look at how we’ve ever documented our existence, it’s all through an art form.”
-Eric Olmscheid, Director of Programming and Education
