Throwdown for a New Sound

Friday, Dec 11: Lowdown Christmas Hoedown • Entourage Jazz • Bluegrass Buddies • The Squash Blossom Boys

Steve Allen

On Friday Dec. 11, Entourage Jazz and The Squash Blossom Boys present the Low Down Christmas Hoedown. It's a benefit concert for Maren Hatch, the bassist for Entourage. About a year ago, Hatch's prized instrument was stolen from her car, which was parked Downtown while she gigged. Since that unfortunate incident, she's been playing on a rental bass—the kind high school students use. On top of that, the damned thing has suffered several cracks and breaks in the interim.

This hard luck story should have good ending though as proceeds from this concert by two of the town's premier music ensembles—Entourage plays awesome big band and swing while the Squash Blossom Boys handle Americana admirably—will go to help Hatch purchase a new bass. The concert at Old Town Farm costs $15 and begins at 7pm. Old Town Farm • Fri Dec 11 • 7pm • $15 • View on Alibi calendar
