Burien Parks’ annual (and FREE) “Music and Movies in the Park ” continues with The Jangles this Thursday, July 22nd at Lake Burien Memorial School Park, located at 16th Ave SW & SW 148th Streets (directions ).
The free concert will include live music from The Jangles , “Seattle’s Premier Country Swing Band” from 6:30pm – 8pm.
Here’s more info on The Jangles from their website :
Leader, Mike Faast has assembled a group of top NW musicians, together they deliver hot pickin’ and three part harmony in a style they affectionately call, “Hick Jazz.”
They’re perfectly at home performing a Western Concert or a Western Swing Dance. With a repertoire that includes, western classics, western show tunes and a wide array of swing tunes, they are winning fans in bluegrass, western and western swing circles alike.
The Jangles are, Paul Anastasio/fiddle, Mike Faast/lead vocals/guitar, Roger Ferguson/guitar/fiddle, Lance and Laurie Haslund/vocals/bass/ukulele (EDITOR’S NOTE: Lance & Laurie both serve on the Burien Arts Board).
The Jangles perform an acoustic version of Texas swing music that is winning fans in both jazz and country circles alike.
Borrowing from Milton Brown, Bob Wills, Hank Williams , Gene Autry, Asleep at the Wheel, Patsy Cline, Jimmy Rivers and others, they put a contemporary edge on a timeless brand of 30’s and 40’s dance music.
Their music is perfectly suited for dancin’ or listening.
The Jangles are both a great country band and a great cowboy band.
Here’s a video of ’em doing “San Antonio Rose”:
