52 Skidoo presents This Joint is Jumpin’

Cheshire Rural Touring Arts will be visiting Macclesfield Library in March with a performance by 52 Skidoo.

1920’s band 52 Skidoo are an unlikely collection of drunks, gamblers, misfits and outlaws performing Harlem Swing, a music born out of the stride piano style made famous by James P. Johnson and Fats Waller.

They formed after a chance meeting whilst looking for unfinished bottles of wine at a New Year’s Eve party in 1929. This led to a mass brawl, multiple arrests and ultimately the formation of the band.

Join the fun on Friday 16th March for an evening of music and comedy themed around the 1920’s – wear your best twenties get-up and dance the night away in the library!
