Rhythm Future Quartet
April 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12
The Skagway Arts Council is proud to present in concert The Rhythm Future Quartet, a world-class Gypsy jazz group dedicated to keeping the genre alive in the new millennium. Imagine the sound of fast-paced strings spilling out the window of a Parisian bistro. Though influenced by masters Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, who pioneered the genre in the 1930s and 40s, the foursome offers up a dynamic, contemporary take on the sound. Rhythm Future Quartet’s performances are a blend of Gypsy jazz standards, original compositions, and a bit of the unexpected (a quirky cover of The Beatles’ “Come Together” is on their latest album). Their musical virtuosity has been heralded widely by critics. The Concert will take place at the Skagway School, Wednesday April 5 at 7 pm. Tickets sold at the door. Adults $12 (SAC Members $10) Kids and Seniors are $8.
