Usk Jazz Weekend presents donnie joe’s American Swing
We were happy to be invited to perform this past Sunday afternoon at the Usk Festival, 2015. Usk is a lovely Market Town just 12 miles south of Monmouth. It was lovely weather on Sunday afternoon and the rather large town square in Usk was setup nicely with a stage surrounded by market stalls of food and other amenities.
The weather being as it was, we couldn’t help but start with the Fields & McHugh classic 'Sunny Side of the Street’. It was a lively, fun, and well received swinging set, which culminated with an up-tempo version of the Irving Berlin favourite ‘Cheek To Cheek.'
This is really a grass roots organised event run by folks who love their town and want to show what an idyllic community it is to live in and visit.
We hope they keep putting on events like this for years to come, and would welcome an invitation to return and entertain their guests.
