      EVENT DETAILS
      Gwen & the Retro Kats

      It”s the Roaring ’20s all over again — and Gwen & the Retro Kats are here to bring the party to your Gatsby! 2020 is 100th Anniversary of “The Roaring Twenties” and we’re bringing them back! Come experience the bygone era of Fedoras, cigarette holders and flappers. The ‘Kats get the night swingin’ with hits like “Cakewalkin Babies From Home” and “Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia” then keep the joint jumpin’ with more contemporary crowd favorites like “I”ll Fly Away” and “Butter Beans.”

      Gwen & The ‘Kats have been performing together for decades, playing music from the 1920s on.  Band members are also veterans of The Ruby Red”s Band, the longest tenured jazz band in Atlanta (52 years!).  Drummer Mike Hinton has toured with Col. Bruce Hampton, Francine Reed and Chuck Berry.

      Gwen Hughes, meanwhile, has a long tenure of her own (though not quite 52 years).  An international touring artist, Hughes has crooned from Stockholm to Istanbul.  The US State Department sponsored two tours of her band through Eastern Europe.

      Ladies, pull out your fringed flapper dresses and feather boas. Gents, don that pin-striped suit;  ’cause we’re having a costume contest with some excellent prizes for the folks with the most razzle in their dazzle! This is going to be a party!

      Saturday, April 4, 8 pm Tickets $20/$25 premium
