Every Friday for thirty weeks, I will write about a topic from the list of the “30 Week Lindy Hop Challenge“.
Week #4: Your Favorite Live Band
That's easy and I don't have to think about it:
In my eyes, there is no other band out there right now which brings such an energy onto the dance floor right from the start of the concert like Gordon Webster and his band (in different formations: Gordon Webster 7, Gordon Webster Sextet, feat. Naomi Uyama, feat. Steven Mitchell).
I have seen Gordon several times at different events and different locations and it's always like that!
No idea, how they do it.
At the end of the night, the dancers get crazy and the band gets crazy. The energy and the inspiration is going back and forth like a ping-pong game.
If you haven't seen them live, you're missing out on something.
And if you don't have his CDs, you're missing out on something again.
