Verdi Club: Jellyroll at the Woodchopper’s Ball
June 25 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Born out of the swing revival of the 1990s, Jellyroll has forged a sound that is at once assured and fine-tuned with freshly conceived arrangements, yet firmly steeped in the traditional jazz, swing, and blues forms. Charismatic and smokey-voiced with impeccable phrasing and fiery blues overtones, bandleader and vocalist Belinda Blair “is one of those rare artists who, as soon as she begins to sing, transforms the room. Her stage presence and vocal mastery transcend artistic mediums.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district. Named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), it features monthly classes, a full bar (21+ only), and a dance party with a drop-in lesson and the largest variety of live swing dance music in town!
