This Thursday Night, January 19th, is the first in a new monthly Jazz Series, presented on the third Thursday of the month, curated by a new partnership between KSQJazz and The Kennett Flash. The first concert in the series features THE HOT CLUB OF PHILADELPHIA, a “Gypsy Jazz” group in the style of Hot Club of France, which was founded in 1934 and active until 1948, which featured legendary guitarist Django Reinardt and equally legendary violinist Stephane Grappelii.
“The Kennett Flash has been terrific to work with and they really want to develop Kennett Square as a destination for world class live music and entertainment,” said KSQ founder, Bryan Tuk. “As a performance space, The Flash is perfect for jazz and the kinds of performers that are going to appear in this series. We’re really looking forward to opening night.”
“I’m excited to continue to diversify our programming and bring new people into The Flash, that is exactly what this series will do, it truly meets our needs,” said Andrew Miller, the Managing Director of The Kennett Flash.
The January performance also features opening act Kiki Villani, made up of Unionville High School Senior Kiera Sankey and Concord High School graduate and Ithaca College music composition major Nick Fagnilli. An important part of this series, and all events at The Flash, is a teaching component and learning opportunity for area music students.
