Natalie’s 7-Year Anniversary Celebration!
- This event has passed.
Whirlybirds will perform at Natalie’s 7-Year Anniversary Celebration. They play an amalgamation New Orleans-style Dixieland and pre-WWII era jazz while still incorporating more modern elements of jazz, pop, soul and funk. The result is unique arrangements of original “swang” music (as well as standards and covers) designed to engage and entertain the audience in a high-energy, live show. Whirlybirds formed in 2016 when Joe Gilliland (vocals, guitar), former bandleader of The DewDroppers, decided to continue creating the kind of accessible, catchy, pop-swing sound that band was known for. Along with Gilliland, the band features Joseph Brenneman (clarinet, saxophone), Trent Sampson (bass), Nick Simko (trumpet), Max Marsillo (drums) and Jacob Campbell (keyboard).
The Natalie’s 7-Year Anniversary Celebration will include festive, energetic shows, and those purchasing tickets will be given a complimentary “Natalie’s 7-Year Anniversary” handkerchief. Created by Alison Rose, the handerchiefs can be waved during the shows as a tribute to the legendary New Orleans soul singer Irma Thomas, which is a tradition for her live shows.
