This past Friday the Mint Julep Quintet premiered at G2B Gastro Pub in Durham, NC – we’d like to thank G2B not only for giving an unknown band a chance, but also for their impeccable hospitality to both the band and our guests and, without a doubt, the greatest hamburger we have ever tasted. We managed to fill up the jazz lounge and, for that, we thank everyone who came from near and far to hear us perform, including a group of fans from Lake Gaston. It was a lovely evening, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue or crowd!

While an 8 piece band is great for dances and special events, it is generally too large for restaurants and bars in the Raleigh/Durham area. We’d still like to bring you the hot jazz and swing, so we’ve pared ourselves down to a quintet! The Mint Julep Quintet will have its first performance at G2B Gastro Pub in Durham, NC on October 5, 2012.

I’ll have one of these, please! And a side of Clarinet Marmalade.
