The Hot Sardines
Energetic and playful NYC-based traditional jazz powerhouse playing 1920s- and '30s-influenced swing and blues.
Quality is timeless. Just ask The Hot Sardines. In the talented hands of this New York-based ensemble, music first made famous decades ago comes alive through their brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and vocals from a chanteuse who transports listeners to a different era with the mere lilt of her voice. They’ve been called “simply phenomenal” by The Times (London), while Forbes calls them “one of the best jazz bands in NY today.” Fueled by the belief that classic jazz feeds the heart and soul, THE HOT SARDINES are on a mission to make old sounds new again and prove that joyful music can bring people together in a disconnected world. They have played the Newport Jazz Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival, have sold out NYC venues from Joe’s Pub to Bowery Ballroom and more than 150 tour dates from Chicago to London. You don’t need to travel far to hear these stars tonight on the Opera House stage! Advance discount tickets $35, available only from the box office at 207-633-5159 (open Wed – Fri from 10-2).
