The Hot Sardines

The Hot Sardines

Holiday Stomp

Without a doubt one of the highlights of the Christmas performance season will be when New York City’s Hot Sardines performs its Holiday Stomp – a “hot jazz” performance that gives voice to the history-defining jazz of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. The program will include “White Christmas,” “Le Noël de la Rue,” “Mele Kelikimaka,” “Please Come Home for Christmas” and more! In a short time, the Hot Sardines have gone from its first gig at a coffee shop on the last Q train stop in Queens, to selling out Joe’s Pub 11 times in a year, headlining at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, and opening for the Bad Plus, Lulu Gainsbourg and French gypsy-jazz artist Zaz. Through it all, the band has become a regular at the Shanghai Mermaid speakeasy and turned The Standard, where they play regularly, into their own “saloon in the sky” (The Wall Street Journal) – complete with tap dancing on the bar.
