If Greg Ruby and the Rhythm Runners' take on Prohibition-era jazz was any more authentic, you'd need a password to get inside the venue. More intoxicating than bathtub gin (and a lot easier on the liver), the music of this quintet evokes a bygone world of speakeasies, roadhouses and dance halls. For their appearance at PONCHO Concert Hall, they will perform compositions by the influential yet little-known Seattle jazz pioneer Frank D. Waldron. Since Waldron never recorded his own songs (and copies of his compositions are exceedingly scarce even today), this is a rare opportunity to hear the music of a true jazz master performed by an accomplished and versatile early jazz ensemble.
