Special Report: Local band, Hot Club of Spokane, set to record debut CD project dedicated to local jazz icons Bing Crosby, Mildred Bailey, and Al Rinker!
Can you name a Bing Crosby tune that's not a Christmas song? How about a Mildred Bailey tune? Or an Al Rinker tune? All three of these outstanding performers called Spokane home. Yet, when members of Hot Club of Spokane interviewed random people in the Spokane community, most could not muster an answer. (Watch the video for some comical responses!)
Hot Club of Spokane is an organization of musicians in Spokane, Washington dedicated to the preservation of jazz, swing, and blues. Founding members met for the first time not one mile from the Mission Swimming Pool, where almost a century earlier, Al Rinker recruited a happy-go-lucky character named "Bing" to play drums in his band called The Musicaladers.
On behalf of everyone in the Inland Northwest, and the generations of musicians and music-lovers to come, please help kickstart this important project to preserve and extend Spokane's incredible music heritage. You can receive copies of the CD, tickets to the CD Release Party at the Bing Crosby Theater in May 2015, and other fun rewards!
