7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Miller Symphony Hall 23 North 6th Street Allentown, PA 18101 Directions
Hot Bijouxx performs an energetic mélange of Prohibition-era jazz,
French gypsy swing-waltz, and Brazilian bossa nova.
Renditions of Great American Songbook standards are
metamorphosized by Hot Bijouxx’s arresting arrangements.
The band features the senstive, ever-creative vocals of Najwa Parkins, who spent nascent years amongst the jazz community of The Deer Head Inn, and has since toured internationally. Hot Bijouxx’s accordionist, Dallas Vietty, is a renowned force in the world of French musette & Gypsy jazz. Ryan McNeely, scholar and devotee of bossa nova, contributes a unique versatility on archtop guitar, while musically gifted drummer Kevin Ripley punctuates the vintage sound with snare and hi-hat. Hot Bijouxx members are currently residing in Philadelphia & Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley.
