The Grand St. Stompers have been making music for over a decade. While their 10-year anniversary landed in the middle of a pandemic, a quarantine, and a national crisis, they have found a way, through the magic of self-recording and remote collaboration, to continue to SWING…IN PLACE. They hope this music will help you do the same.
Following Volume 1: Originals, this Volume 2 E.P. contains songs arranged and recorded especially for balboa and up-tempo dancing (and are wonderful to listen to as well), that premiered at CalBal Live 2021. Featured on vocals are the wonderful MOLLY RYAN and the inimitable TAMAR KORN.
Featuring Tamar Korn – vocals; Molly Ryan – vocals; Gordon Au – trumpet, arranger; Dennis Lichtman – clarinet, alto sax; Matt Koza – soprano sax; Ricky Alexander – tenor sax; Matt Musselman – trombone; Nick Russo – guitar; Dalton Ridenhour – piano; Rob Adkins – bass; Rob Garcia – drums.
★ All album profits in 2021 (including donations above the recommended price) will go directly to the musicians, to support them during this difficult time of cancelled events, lost gigs, and uncertain futures. We appreciate your support in helping to keep this music alive!
Special thanks to California Balboa Classic, their team, and attendees, and song sponsors including Jenn Lee (I Can’t Give…), Tara Sliwinski (You Went Away…), Jennifer Barnett and the NYC Bal Scene (Riverboat Shuffle), and anonymous.
