It’s going to be a chilly night, but the JONATHAN DOYLE SWINGTET will keep us warm with some of Austin’s hottest trad jazz. The band features some of Austin’s greatest musicians: Jonathan Doyle, Lyon Graulty, JD Pendley, Lindsey Green, Nate Rowe, and Jason Baczynski! Make sure to bring your friends because we only have ONE more Engine Room before the end of the year after this one. WHAT?! Don’t forget that Engine Room is BYOB. Also, we only take CASH at the door!

We’re doing a very special Engine Room this month, and it’ll be THIS SATURDAY (2nd Sat of the month). We’re throwing a big farewell party for Ryan and Lauryn Gould as they leave for Ireland for a year to get their MA in Community Music – enhancing community life through music amongst other communally beneficial concepts. To help illustrate a little of what that all means, the Goulds are setting up a special Engine Room implementing musicians, dancers, and enthusiasts into the performance. We’re eager to see what they have brewing! You won’t want to miss this! Don’t forget: Engine Room is always BYOB! No credit cards or checks. CASH ONLY PLEASE!

We have a special treat for y’all this month! This year is the 100th Anniversary of Frankie Manning (The ambassador of swing dancing). In honor of this, the Frankie Manning Foundation has setup this Memorial Day weekend as the World Lindy Hop Weekend (as well as an epic event in New York City where 2000+ dancers will gather together and celebrate dancing). We are working together with some other organizations to help bring World Lindy Hop Weekend to Austin. So to make it special, we have Tuba Skinny from New Orleans playing for us. Come join us on May 24, 2014 to check them out. And if you want to learn more about World Lindy Hop Weekend in Austin check out their site!

The last Engine Room of the year, and we’re so thankful for such an inspiring year of fantastic music, jazz enthusiasts friendships, and an all around good time! 2014 marks Engine Room’s 6th year and by far our most successful. Let’s end the year with a bang! This December, we’re having Jonathan Doyle return with a completely different band – JONATHAN DOYLE QUINTET! Sounds similar to the Swingtet, but this band features Hal Smith on drums, Joshua Hoag on bass, Brooks Prumo on rhythm guitar, Dave LeRoy Biller on amplified guitar, and of course Jonathan Doyle on tenor sax. Let’s try to break some records this month!
Join us every Third Saturday in Austin, Texas for Live Jazz Music by Some of the Best Bands in Town!
