ACCIDENTALLY HIP

Steamy Summer Swing

Friday, JuLY 16th @ 8:00 PM

*This event has shifted to a livestream format due to weather. Tickets are still available for a private livestream link until 30 minutes before showtime.*

Summer is here and Accidentally Hip plans on making things so cool you’ll be glad for the hot weather. Their exciting show of crowd favorites, Steamy Summer Swing, is live and in person at the Kerrytown Concert House with their signature sound of taking modern tunes and flipping them into swing tunes and vice versa. Led by award winning arranger and composer R. MacKenzie Lewis, this versatile and flexible ensemble takes on everything from early swing and jazz standards to R&B, Hip Hop, and current pop tunes, all with their distinct twist. Their broad musical influences merge together to create a unique, fun, and dynamic musical experience.  

The exciting and fiery vocals of Courtney Riddle gets the audience’s hearts racing one minute and melts them the next. Her brassy and bombastic flair balances with her vulnerable sensitivity, allowing the group to take on a wide range of songs from powerful driving hits to delicate tender ballads. The band, including their expanded three horn section, is joined by the electrifying vocals of Christopher Joseph for this special outdoor concert. 

The band’s members have performed and written for some of the finest ensembles in the country including The Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Will Sessions, Shoshana Bean in Concert, Paul Keller Orchestra, Broadway & Off-Broadway national tours, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Contours, The Coasters, Jerry Mack and the Terriplanes, Mainstreet Soul, and Steve Cox and the Detroit Hammers, among others.
