At the Elks’ hall this week, treat yourself to an “18 karat” evening as the Lensmen take you on a journey through the golden age of jazz.
The Lensmen romp through a spectrum of styles from the roaring ’20s through the ’50s, adding their own flair to the mix.
Behind the drum kit, as an original member of the Desperation Jazz Band, Len Wilkie’s vocals stir up the golden age of crooners, reminiscent of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself.
Al West’s “street learning” lights up the banjo and lively vocals while grounding the group with upright bass.
Newcomer Mike Eddy brings a degree in classical piano to his jazz renditions.
Noel Thomas, another Desperation Jazz Band original, enjoys variations of style on the cornet.
The piano styling of Eddy and Thomas’ smooth sensitivity and Dixieland feel round out the group.
The music starts at 7:30 this Thursday and is by donation. The Elks’ hall is located at 231 Sixth St. (across from the Atlas Café).
