The Hot Sardines

Jazz,Tap/Jazz

The Hot Sardines were born when a guy and a girl met at an open vintage-jazz jam session advertised on Craigslist. Between two noodle shops on 49th Street, they discovered a mutual love for songs from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s. This is straight-up, foot-stomping jazz, literally: the band includes a tap dancer whose feet count as two members of the rhythm section.
