Hot Sardines

Presented by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation at EJ Thomas Performing Arts Hall - University of Akron, Akron OH

Oct 30 2015
Hot Sardines

Hot Jazz from Prohibition-Era Bourbon Street to the Cabarets of Paris

Born of a unique musical recipe, The Hot Sardines take hot jazz and sultry standards from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, sprinkle in the rich Dixieland sounds of New Orleans, add a dash of wartime Paris flavor, and infuse a wealth of vibrant musical surprises that hold audiences captive long after the show ends. Recently named “one of the best Jazz bands in New York today” by Forbes Magazine.

Sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, EJ’s Contemporaries is a series of innovative, provocative, edgy trend setters, breaking stereotypes while generating critical acclaim for their artistry.


General Admission – $30.00
UA Students – $15.00
