Earles of Newtown perform Alibi Aleworks in Truckee, CA on Saturday, June 9th at 9:00pm. C'mon out and shake the dance floor with us to some "Gypsy Dixie" Hot Dance Jazz!!! $15 Pre-Sale, $20 Door.
Earles of Newtown is an eclectic 8 piece band featuring 8 vibrant and expressive soloists. The music we
refer to as Funky-Gypsy-Dixieland Jazz is originally composed, dance orientated and spans genres through prohibition era jazz, southern funk, dance grooves and electro swing. The band performs regularly at many Bay Area/SF venues such as Club Deluxe on Haight Street and was recently booked to play the Museum of Wonders Stage in the Masonic Lodge for the 2018 Edwardian Ball in San Francisco. The Earles’ original compositions present elements of New Orleans horns, rockabilly guitar, stride piano coming together to complete a circus/gypsy high-energy vibe that is inspired by juke joint dance clubs and Burning Man culture.
Earles of Newtown received the “Best Live Band of 2014 Award” from the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce in Northern California. Notable performances include opening for Dr. John and Allen Toussaint as well as March Fourth Marching Band.
Recently mentioned in the Sacramento Bee, “Three to See,” as “one of the gems of the gold country music scene, jazz collective Earles of Newtown peddles perfectly junky juke joint jazz – the kind you’d find in hidden back alley clubs in New Orleans that still require a password and sling a mean mint julep.”
“Old time swing jazz never sounded so alive and present as dished out by the incomparable Earles of Newtown. Uncompromisingly authentic, these royal lads fold in the music and whimsy of a bygone era into the high fidelity production values of the XXIst Century. The Earles with their jiving rhythm beat jazz will have your heart (soon to be followed by your feet) jumping for joy.”
