Jazz and art fans might be interested in heading to Utica for a concert at the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute Saturday.  The Hot Sardines will bring their up-to-date renditions of jazz tunes from decades past.  The concert supports the current exhibition, Roaring into the Future: New York 1925-35, which includes paintings, fashion, jewelry and other artifacts.

The Empire state was a driving force behind modernization in the post-World War I era.  The works highlight social changes, including race relations, women’s rights and technology of the time. 

The Hot Sardines feature an 8-piece jazz band, with a horn section, backing singer and founder Elizabeth Bougerol.  Their music includes blues, brassy horns, souring piano accompaniment and even a tap dancer on stage at times.

The concert takes place at the MWPAI Sculpture Court, Saturday, October 7th at 7:30 p.m.
