  • Glen Echo Park 7300 MacArthur Boulevard Glen Echo, Maryland 20812 (map)

Admission $20 at the door, general admission only. Carpooling is always recommended at Glen Echo.

Moonshine Rhythm Club brings old-school swing and jazz to life with joyful arrangements and energetic playing that makes this vintage music sound like it was written this morning. The boys seek out deep cuts from the '30s and '40s, take their favorite parts from classic big band recordings, and distill them into their signature sound. That sound draws on the guitar-driven, acoustic fire of gypsy jazz, as well as the slow burn and laid-back groove of later artists like Count Basie and Nat “King” Cole. On top of this lays classy and hip vocals with a lighthearted humor. Gottaswing is delighted to welcome the Moonshine Rhythm Club to the stage at the Spanish Ballroom.
