“An evening with two of the most celebrated artists of the Americana tradition. David Bromberg’s incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes – but is not limited to – adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. Tom Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Tom as major influences. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor.”

Plus I'm told that they purchased the gorgeous old wooden bar from a venue that Sinatra used to frequent, so YOU can sit where Ol' Blue Eyes once did and enjoy a libation with some live jazz! No cover; just make sure to support the heck out of the bar and tip your bartenders (and band) heartily. Come on in and join us for a grand time!!”

Michael Gamble’s Rhythm Serenaders at Rhythm is Our Business
CenterStage Events Venue (Gallatin, TN)
time TBA, tickets required
“Live music is, arguably, one of the most pivotal parts of Lindy Hop - the history of our dance is steeped in the sounds of Duke Ellington, Jimmy Lunceford, Count Basie, and all of the swing bands we know and love. But when it comes to the partnership between dance and live music, we're missing something - and Rhythm Is Our Business looks to bridge that gap. We're here to bring you the best in partnership - the partnership between dancers and live music, the partnership between song form and flow of movement, the partnership between dancers and their dance partners, and the way all of these come together to create a perfect dance. In a world where emphasis is put on steps and technique in movement, we want to remind you how to bring it back to the original roots of moving to and with the music you dance alongside. Rhythm Is Our Business brings you back to the music. Let's re-acquaint ourselves with that partnership together!”
