Chicago Stompers at Tynemouth


It seems like hot dance music from the 1920s is the thing these days! The Chicago Stompers from Italy gave an al fresco (no relation to al capone) performance at the Mouth of the Tyne Festival in Tynemouth. Like last week's Red Hot Rhythmakers they were young and not totally male. I'll re-phrase that; there were two girls in the band (see photo left) Veronica, pink dress and vocals, and Vanessa, tenor sax, clarinet and ukulele. The girls also Charlestoned with style.
Good period entertainment
