Jay Brown’s Grace Street Seven is a vintage Jazz Septet that performs songs in the tradition of early American dance bands from the 1920s-1930s. Homegrown right here in RVA, this versatile group specializes in playing Victrola Record transcriptions of vintage classics from the likes of Al Bowlly, Fletcher Henderson, Ray Noble and Irving Berlin. The instrumental line-up includes trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, tenor banjo, piano, upright bass and percussion/drums. Full of sophistication and exuding the nostalgia of early American Jazz, expect a dapper yet cheeky performance with a few fun surprises. Grab your dancing shoes and best vintage duds to join the fun!
