A RUSTY'S DEBUT!
JAMIE WOOD & THE GOOD ROCKIN' DADDYS

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING...

"I am smitten by her sassy, powerhouse vocals, and by a band that swings irresistibly!" -- Blues In Britain Magazine (UK)

"Jamie Wood has a strong, throaty delivery that's believable." -- Blues Revue (USA)

" Wood's sultry, martini-tinged vocals fill each song with a distinctive, winning flair." -- O.C. Weekly (USA)

"Her personality shines through every track and makes you feel that this is one cool and hip woman with whom you'd love to party" -- Blueswax Online Magazine (USA)

" La Diva du Westcoast!" -- Blues & Co. (France)



ABOUT THE BAND

While Jamie's sound has evolved over the years to include Chicago, Kansas City and West Coast blues, today her sound is very much her own. Her style is firmly rooted in blues, with a rhythm section reminiscent of the small swing combos of the 30's and 40's. One might say it's a marriage of blues, 40's jazz and post-war swing. In collaboration with her husband, pianist Martin "Daddy-O" Gagnon, they have formed a brand new ensemble – Jamie Wood & the Good Rockin Daddys - whose members include Henry Carvajal - guitar; Hank Van Sickle - stand-up bass; and Ed Mann - drums.

Jamie's southern heritage, together with her stage charisma, make her a natural at blues and all its dialects. Her influences include Ella Mae Morse, Ernestine Anderson, Anita O'Day, Big Mama Thorton, Dinah Washington, Helen Humes, Julia Lee, Jimmy Rushing and Louis Jordan. Contemporary influences include the late William Clarke, Junior Watson, Kim Wilson, Rick Estrin, the late Hollywood Fats, Charlie Musselwhite, and the Mighty Flyers, to name a few.

MY FAVORITE MOVE
7:30-8:00PM - FREE*

This week's teachers Scott & Cheryll



Come to Rusty's early and learn their "My Favorite Move."

WHAT IS "MY FAVORITE MOVE"?

This is a 1/2 hour class taught by one of our Rusty's & Lindy by the Sea regulars. These dancers are not professional instructors (as with our Friday guest instructors), and the class will have an informal air, with the dancers sharing one of their favorite dance moves.

MY FAVORITE MOVE gives you a chance to come to the dance a little early, warm up by learning a new move, and visit with your friends before the night's dancing begins.

If you would like to share one of your favorite moves, contact me via EMAIL, and I'll put you in the calendar.

At Rusty's, each week we strive to present the best of swing dance music for your dancing pleasure. In realizing that dancers have varying taste in their swing music, we present a wide range of music styles from over the decades: vintage swing, Big Bands, small groups, Rockabilly, Rock 'n' Roll, Doo Wop, Neo Swing, West Coast Swing, and just everything in between. Really anything from the 1920s to the present that will get your feet dancing, that's what we bring in!
