With a salty stride piano, blustery brass lineup, French-born singer and fast-tapping percussion, the band’s sound is French hot jazz meets New Orleans brass. The Sardines make the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Fats Waller used to make: straight-up, foot stomping jazz with live performances that pack a powerful punch of fun. Sultry standards from the 20s, 30s and 40s come alive with a vibrancy that captivates and lingers long after the show is over.
