We are excited to tell you that the Mint Julep Jazz Band was voted the best musical artist/band in the 2013 Best of Durham Awards, sponsored by Durham Magazine! We are supremely surprised and grateful for the love and send out immense thank yous to everyone who voted for us.
We named our first album after this town to show how much we love Durham, and we are getting the love back from you tenfold. 😀
Thank you, Durham!
The Mint Julep Jazz Band’s first big road trip is coming up this Friday, June 14, 2013 as we head to Cleveland, Ohio to perform at All Balboa Weekend! This is the longest-running, if not the largest, Balboa event in the world, and plays host to a number of competitions, dances, DJs, international instructors, live music, vendors, and other special events throughout the weekend. Needless to say, we are honored to be a part of their band lineup, along with Pittsburgh’s Boilermaker Jazz Band, who is playing the Saturday night dance.
The Mint Julep Jazz Band is performing at the Friday night dance, from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.!
For more information about the event, which runs from June 13-16, 2013, please visit http://www.allbalboa.com.
