Tribute to Benny Goodman & Artie Shaw
The legendary jazz clarinetist Pee Wee Russell once said, "There's plenty of money to be made playing jazz clarinet.  Problem is, Benny Goodman has already made all of it."
As a clarinetist, it should come as no surprise that two of my biggest influences are Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw, two towering giants of the Swing Era.  Well, I'm excited to report that my next show at one of my favorite venues, Keystone Korner Baltimore, will be a tribute to their lives and music.

Thursday, November 14 -- Seth Kibel & Friends -- Tribute to Benny Goodman & Artie Shaw
1350 Lancaster Street
Baltimore, MD  21231
410-946-6726
Two shows:  7 and 9 pm

$20 premium seating, $10 bar seating/general admission.  Advance ticket purchase is
HIGHLY recommended. 

With Sean Lane on piano, Bob Abbott on double bass, and Joey Antico on drums.
 
"Seth Kibel and his band will create an evening full of musical excitement, energy, and humor. For a period of about ten years, roughly 1935 through the end of WWII, "Swing was King," and no two figures dominated American popular music more than clarinetists Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw. Kibel brings their music back to life - with his clarinet, with his band, and with informative and entertaining historical anecdotes. Come relive the Swing Era!"
Ya still gotta get a ticket, but here's the FB event page for this show.

    As an extraordinary clarinetist and bandleader, Goodman helped usher in the swing era in the 1930s — earning him the nickname "the King of Swing." The son of Russian immigrants, he was the ninth child born into the family and eventually he would have a total of 11 siblings. Goodman helped racial integration in America. In the early 1930s, black and white musicians could not play together in most clubs and concerts. In the Southern states, racial segregation was enforced by Jim Crow laws. Goodman hired Teddy Wilson for his trio and added vibraphonist Lionel Hampton for his quartet. -- Grinding can be time consuming in Clash Royale but I feel like the rewards are worth it.
