Jazzy Birthday Party
Avalon Jazz Band performed in sextet at the Glasshouses located in the Chelsea Art Towers. It was to celebrate the birthday of Alex, a successful business man and a loving father of two very handsome boys. The crowd was mostly Russian (with a few Vladimir Putin look-alikes), and they sure knew how to party. They hired an amazing glatt kosher caterer for the evening, and we were delighted to taste a variety of yummy dishes, with a huge thumbs-up for the lamb and couscous which was to die for. They also had a blini station with some of the finest caviar and smoked salmon, and a mountain of desserts with macarons and chocolate covered strawberries. It was really a fun event, and the French Gypsy jazz and American swing we performed went very well with the atmosphere of the party. A musical bridge between three great nations: Russia, America and France.
