A-Town Agency presents: Friday September 7th, 2012
Celebrate a night of Boogie Woogie, Western Swing and Hillbilly Bop and at the Historic Cafe Du Nord, built in 1907, dress your 1950s best at this once notorious speakeasy during the Prohibition era.
CARL SONNY LEYLAND TRIO (Boogie Woogie) - http://www.carlsonnyleyland.com/home.cfm
Critics have called Carl Sonny Leyland one of the best vintage boogie woogie piano players in the world, as recently he was inducted into the Boogie Woogie Hall of Fame. His styles range from early 1900's blues, ragtime and stride piano, to 30's & 40's boogie woogie and rhythm & blues, to 50's pumping rock n roll. Carl has grown a dangerously addictive piano playing repertoire. Top it off with a voice for hollerin' the blues, and you too will be downright diggin' it.
