Join us on the last Friday of August for our finale where, in lieu of the jam, we will have swing dancing with the Zzymzzy Sextet! See the full schedule here.

*Zzymzzy Sextet*

The guys from the Zzymzzy Sextet have simple ambitions: they just want to play it like it was when it was unamplified, melodic, swinging, dreamy, full of sly surprise. From the Prohibition through the Second Big War, the glory days of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington are being recaptured humbly and with humor in San Diego by four musicians who know it don’t mean a thing without that swing: Beston Barnett on guitar and vocals, Matt Gill on clarinet, Paul Hormick on upright bass, and Pete Miesner on guitar and lead vocals. The usual four will be accompanied by a drummer and a trombonist to really bring up the energy in this swing dance session!
