The Bailsmen brought their vintage swing to The Belfry on Wednesday evening, adding upbeat jazz tempo to the already-lively bar. Drawing on the sounds of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Billie Holiday, the band combines a Louisiana-style big-band sound with soft, raspy-voiced jazz. The result is an ambiance that makes the audience feel like they’ve been transported to an intimate New Orleans show.
The group just finished recording their second album “Le Mensch” and are looking forward to taking the new music on tour. The new album showcases, their unique style comes through brining out a sound that is truly one of a kind. When the Bailsmen hit the stage, it won’t be long before you are on the dance floor having a great time: http://thebailsmen.bandcamp.com/album/le-mensch
