(SOUTH EGREMONT, Mass.) – The Lucky 5, a hard-swinging jazz band that blends swing and Gypsy jazz to create a unique, foot-stomping blend of music that appeals to a wide range of music lovers, entertains at The Barn at The Egremont Village Inn on Friday, November 25, at 8pm. The Lucky 5 performs original compositions as well as putting a new spin on old jazz standards.
The band is comprised of highly seasoned touring musicians, having been part of The Hunger Mountain Boys, Lauren Ambrose & the Leisure Class, and traveled, performed, and recorded with artists such as Peter Gabriel, Tony Bennett, Neko Case, Iris Dement, Bobby Previte, Del McCoury, Jim Lauderdale, and others.
The Lucky 5 brings verve, high energy, and an unpredictable impulse to the tradition of jazz from the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s, grooving deeply, and keeping feet moving on the dance floor.
Admission is $10.
The Barn features a massive stone fireplace, a full bar and comfortable seating. The property also includes the Egremont Village Inn, all situated on many acres of groomed grounds with tall pines and an old fashioned gazebo.
Built in 1786, the Egremont Village Inn is on the National Historic Registry and one of the oldest buildings in the area. The meticulously restored country inn offers a complimentary country breakfast and one-of-a-kind rooms and suites. All of the buildings are restored and updated with modern conveniences. The original house was built in 1786 by Colonel Joseph Curtis. A veteran of the Revolutionary War, Curtis arrived in what is now South Egremont on horseback with wife Rebekah in 1780.
