Biography: Chez Roue
Combining skill, musical imagination and emotional expression, CHEZ ROUE is one of the best jazz bands around. Performing jazz standards and jump swing tunes, CHEZ ROUE makes the Jazz Age come alive again. With sounds and singing so similar to voices of the past, you'll think Louis Armstrong himself is playing for you.
The composers and artist tributes range from Duke Ellington to Frank Sinatra to Ernest Tubb; from Nat King Cole to Fats Waller to Dean martin; from Louis Armstrong to Count Basie to Big Joe Turner; from New Orleans to Memphis, touching Nashville, to East Texas to Chicago and New York. From the complex rhythms to unrelenting tempos that bring back the excitement of the Swing Era, CHEZ ROUE conveys an atmosphere of energy and sophistication. Superior music for lively dancing; fantastic entertainment for a classy, distinctive evening.
Webster's New World Dictionary defines "alternative" as: providing a choice between things; an institution appealing to unconventional interests. Based on that definition, CHEZ ROUE plays definitely alternative music. No three-chord thrash rock here. Big band arrangements for a small band. The sounds of the great American songbook. The music that made the world SWING! And music that swings, that has a groove, is definitely alternative.
