April 4 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Pianist Suzzette Ortiz proudly hosts “Jazz in the Wood,” First Thursdays Neighborhood Concerts at the Collingswood Community Center, 30 Collings Ave, Collingswood, NJ 08108. Showtime is 7:30-9:00 pm. Tickets: $15 in advance ($20 at the door). Students $5 and children under 12 FREE!

“Americana under the influence of Jump Blues, Swing, & Rockabilly…Ba – ba – ba – Boogie! With a dab of N’awlins for extra spice! Smoke & honey vocals, Cigar Box Guitar, Upright Bass, Banjo, Washboard…servin’ up high energy & deep vintage vibes is our specialty. Roots Baby Roots!”

Mary Armstrong of The City Paper described the rockabilly-rooted quartet, the April Mae & June Bugs as having a “sound built on cigar-box guitar, slap bass, washboard, (and the swingin’est skins) . . . taking familiar roots genres and twisting them around Mae’s elbow-gloved, gold-capped fingers.” The group blends rural, jump blues, retro-swing and folk music with a feeling of 1940’s jive, for a completely unique and authentic sound. April Mae Iorio (who goes by the stage name “April Mae”) and her partner “Catfish” Dave (Dave Fecca), along with Topher Horner and Tony Mascara, have been traveling the country and bringing their sweet sound to a variety of venues from music festivals and swing dance halls to speakeasy burlesque shows and rockabilly hoedowns since their inception in 2010.
