The Hot Sardines – the mischief-makers of hot jazz who started out playing underground neo-speakeasies in Brooklyn, make their MMF debut in support of their newest live album Welcome Home, Bon Voyage. The eight-piece – seven, with a tap dancer – was founded by 2 leaders over a shared love of Fats Waller, at a jazz jam above a noodle shop in New York City. They have toured more than 250 cities in the past year, blowing out their vintage-on-steroids sound to crowds throughout North America, Europe and Asia.  Not many bands have seized the postmillennial early-jazz spotlight with as much gusto as The Hot Sardines.” (WGBO radio)


This concert takes place in Sorrel River’s open-sided pavilion which provides splendid views of towering red mesas and breathtaking sunsets, balmy evening breezes and shelter from any passing storms. Adjacent lawn seating is also available. A food, beer, and wine tent is located adjacent to the pavilion.
