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 1940s, 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). Critics have heralded their musical virtuosity widely. The concert will take place at the Skagway School, Wednesday, April 5, at 7 p.m. Tickets sold at the door. Adults $12 (SAC Members $10). Kids and seniors are half price.
