Swinging at the Food Truck Festival
Avalon Jazz Band gave a special concert at the 2012 International Food Truck and Beer Festival at the South Street Seaport in Manhattan. What a beautiful place! You can really feel the ghost of old New Amsterdam lingering in the red brick buildings and the historic cobblestones. We performed right in front of the Peking, a huge steel four-masted windjammer from 1911, which was very impressive. All around us were numerous food-trucks, a flying trapeze and thousands of people. It was a wonderful event and we had a lot of fun (and some great food-truck pizza slices).
