Friday Main Dance with the Careless Lovers

Polish Home Association - 1714 18th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98122, USA | 7-11pm - $30 at the door

Opening night of the Exchange, and we’re kicking things off in style! Join us for an energetic good time with the Careless Lovers, who are an assembly of jazz musicians and swing dancers, inspired by the early swingin’ sounds from the streets and clubs of New Orleans, Chicago, and NYC, past and present. The band plays a mix of traditional jazz, blues, and swing era tunes with a care-free, energetic style. With an infectiously danceable rhythm, the Careless Lovers add to the spirit and joy of early jazz culture in Seattle.

The core of the band is a quartet with trumpet, trombone, guitar, and upright bass. The Lovers like to sing old-timey melodies and group call- and-responses that get everyone involved. With a diverse variety of old jazz standards, riffing dance tunes, and songs of love and life, there’s a bit of something for the careless lover in everyone.

Mike VanBebber - trumpet
Julian MacDonough - drums
Jacob Zimmerman - reeds
Brett Nakashima - bass
