Sweet Megg and her wayfaring musicians blend New Orleans Swing, Harlem swing, Parisian cabaret, and gut bucket blues into one charming musical performance. Saxophonist Ryan Weisheit reimagines a world where Sidney Bechet, Lester Young, and Charlie Parker blow side by side. Together Sweet Megg, Ryan, and all the Wayfarers create a world where jazz is alive and well and living in New York. Dance lessons are at 6:30, band starts at 7 pm. In case of rain, the event will be held on Thursday, July 27.
The Plaza Swing Series is made possible with the generous support of Sandra and Peter Schubert and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
