Videos from the 2013 Queen City Lindy Exchange

We had a great time this past weekend performing at the 2013 Queen City Lindy Exchange! Here are a few videos we got from the show:

Russ Wilson with the Mint Julep Jazz Band at QCLX!

We are excited to have Russ Wilson making an appearance as our drummer at the Queen City Lindy Exchange‘s Saturday night dance on March 10, 2012! Russ Wilson is an esteemed bandleader in his own right, leading the Nouveau-Passe Orchestra, Russ Wilson and his Mighty Mighty Men, and the Russ Wilson Swingtette, and appears with many other great bands in the Asheville/Hendersonville area, like the Firecracker Jazz Band.

We love to play with Russ because he’s got some serious early jazz drumming chops and has so much experience playing for dancers – it’s going to be an amazing night of dancing in Charlotte!

Mint Julep Jazz Band to play Queen City Lindy Exchange!

The Mint Julep Jazz Band is excited to announce that we will be playing the Queen City Lindy Exchange on March 10, 2012! QCLX 2012: The Queen City Strikes Back will have a Star Wars theme and Lucian (aka Luke) Cobb is already planning on bringing his lightsaber, along with MJJB’s hot lineup of jazz musicians. Special thanks to Eric and Stephanie Simpson of QCLX for giving us our official premier gig!
