The RDU Rent Party Players proudly present: Two Fancy Lads discussing the upcoming Rent Party
Fancy Lad 1: “I say old chap, have you heard that the swingsational Solomon Douglas Sextet featuring Alison Dreyfuss will be happening through this area, but a fortnight from the morrow?”
Fancy Lad 2: “Indeed I have my good man.”
Fancy Lad 1: “And might it have passed ‘twixt thy ears that they are bound thereafter for the hills of Virginia for a revolt of the Lindustrial variety?”
Fancy Lad 2: “Quite right you are sir, and thus it seems chronologically sound that the Lindustrial Revolution should in fact be preceded by our own Agricultural Revolution.”
Fancy Lad 1: “Ah yes, kind sir, then will not this 6-strong legion be empowered herein with ingenious new ways to fertilize and cultivate while staving off famine… musically speaking, of course?”
Fancy Lad 2: “Indeed.”
Fancy Lad 1: “Quite.”
Fancy Lad 2: “M’yes.”

Not only are we entertaining, but Rent Party is now educational as well. Since the Solomon Douglas Sextet will be playing just 2 days later at Lindustrial Revolution, we decided to drop some knowledge and bring in the historical age preceding the Industrial (which obviously EVERYONE knows is the British Agricultural Revolution, at least according to our very limited searching of *HaHmm* Wikipedia ).
The Solomon Douglas Sextet will be playing RDU Rent Party on Thursday August 30 from 9-midnight at Triangle Dance Studio. As per usual Rent Party procedures, the dance will be pay-what-you-can with a suggested $10 minimum and all proceeds going directly to the band.
The Solomon Douglas Sextet will feature vocals, piano, guitar, bass, drums, trombone. They will play a wide variety of swing and blues tunes and a solid range of tempos for Lindy, Charleston, East Coast, and Balboa.

2603 S. Miami Blvd.
9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
We would also like to direct your attention to the following Friday night Blues Dance where the Solomon Douglas Quartet will be playing an all blues set. The Quartet will be a smaller combo with vocals, piano, bass, and guitar playing an all blues set and more slow dance oriented tempos.
