It’s a night of firsts! With the good graces of Hot Club of Durham, we’d like to welcome the Mint Julep Jazz Band to the RDU Rent Party stage! The Mint Julep Jazz Band is the new musical endeavor of Laura Windley and Lucian Cobb, veteran jazz cats and purveyors of fine, swinging music. We’re happy to host their debut performance and look forward to hearing all the new music they have in store for us!
Also making her debut is DJ Sarah Ovenall, host of WXDU’s Divaville Lounge, which highlights “great songs and singers from Tin Pan Alley to the swing era,” every Sunday from 2-4 p.m. on 88.7 FM. If you’ve ever heard Sarah’s show, you know that she has an extensive music collection from the jazz age and swing era. She’s up for this new DJ challenge and we’re excited to hear her first set for dancers!
