This Thursday our Music on the Lawn features the Pimps of Pompe.
Taking a Postmodern Jukebox approach, the Pimps of Pompe adapt hip-hop and R&B hits to the lively melodies and driving rhythm of gypsy jazz, pimping out what the French call “la pompe” (the pump). Cynthia (mandolin, vocals) also has a growing repertoire of original material in this fusion of genres. The band’s acoustic instrumentation (mandolin, guitar and upright bass) keeps the music rooted in tradition, while the sound is fresh and innovative. The resulting blend of harmonic sophistication and contemporary lyrics is modern-day folk music that would make Django Reinhardt and Snoop Dogg equally proud.
Bring a chair or blanket or grab one of ours that we offer. You can enjoy adult beverages and food on our patio or on the lawn!!
