American standards meets Gypsy Swing at performing arts center

PERFORMANCE

Posted

The Black Market Trust will appear one night only 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21 at the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts in Wickenburg, 2001 W. Wickenburg Way, Suite 3.

The five-piece band blends the traditional pop hits of the Great American Songbook with the fire and energy of Gypsy Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Encompassing “the Smithsonian of music” with blues, rock, jazz and swing influences, the fresh and exciting sound feels somehow familiar and inviting across generations.

Using simple melodies and four-part harmonies inspired by bands such as The Beach Boys and The Beatles, The Black Market Trust mix intricate jazz virtuosity on acoustic guitars, violin, upright bass and drums to create a gypsy-style swing that couples Old World romance with New World energy.

The Los Angeles-based group received widespread acclaim in 2012 with their innovative, all-instrumental debut studio album, “The Black Market Trust.” Songs from their subsequent albums include “Route 66,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Sway,” “Beyond the Sea” and many more made famous by legendary crooners like Nat “King” Cole and Frank Sinatra.

Delivering a high-energy performance with a dash of Rat Pack-style humor, the musicians blend two distinctly different vibes – one a slick metropolitan nightclub, the other a gypsy campfire – into a cohesive, stylish sound.

Tickets start at $32 for adults and $5 for those 18 and younger. Visit dewpac.org or call the Webb Center Box Office at 928-684-6624 for more information.
