Ladies and Gentlemen
Saturday November 10th the Elegant Music Jazz Trio performed for a formal dinner dance. Men wore tux. Women wore amazing cocktail dresses and evening attire. Guests knew how to have a good time and conducted themselves as ladies and gentlemen. So it was fitting that the Elegant Music Jazz Trio performed at the venerable Annandale Country Club for this elegant affair.
Elegant Music Jazz Trio
It is true that as musicians we play and interact with each other. In the moment (together as band members) we create the music on the spot, right before your eyes… or ears. We have a lot of fun doing this.
The audience plays an important roll in a performance. Their interaction with the performers and each other as dancers greatly contributes to the band’s performance. So there is a phenomena, a special communication between band and dancers that occurs, each inspiring the other. Well there was certainly a lot of that on Saturday night. The band members and I had a lot of fun interacting with the dancers who in many ways “conducted us” with their dancing.
We were all swingin’!
