The Swedish band Sunset Serenaders plays an irresistible mix of American Tin Pan Alley, blues and Hawaiian music – all from the prohibition era – with lots of harmony vocals. It is the only steel guitar driven band to focus on this style of music today. The members, who all sing, are Robert Spång, steel guitar, Kurt Öberg, guitar and Nisse Palm, upright bass. The band is now preparing a stage play about son of Swedish immigrants Simon Lundberg, who in the mid 30´s founded and ran Andersonville´s Simon´s Tavern which is still a popular establishment. At The Swedish-American Museum they will talk about the life and times of Simon Lundberg and play period music.
Cost is $10. Prepaid tickets are required and no refunds available for cancellations within 5 days of event.
