Steve Jones and Garden City Hot Club to perform at "Music on the Menu" July 18

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library invites everyone to bring a lunch and enjoy "Music on the Menu," an outdoor series of events held on the dock outside the library.

Steve Jones and the Garden City Hot Club (GCHC) will perform from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, July 18. GCHC is a swinging jazz trio featuring Steve Jones with his hot lead guitar and easy-going vocals, Bob Hiltunen on second lead guitar and rhythm, and Scott McIntosh on bass.

Using the "Gypsy Swing" of Django Reinhardt as their base, the GCHC bring their intensity and joyful approach to original compositions, old jazz standards, modern Roma-influenced music, swing-based novelty songs, blues, and anything else that sounds good.

Usually everyone sits back and relaxes during Music on the Menu, but the GCHC performances always engage audiences and usually get the dancers to their feet.

In the event of bad weather, the program will be held in the community room.

This event is part of the library’s Summer Reading Program and is free and open to all. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
