Get ready for some Blues & Boogie Woogie

Chase Garrett’s Blues & Boogie Woogie Piano Stomp

Englert Theatre, Nolte Academy, Sheraton Hotel — Nov. 13-14

Chase Garrett’s 6th Annual Blues & Boogie Woogie Piano Stomp is back in Iowa City with two days full of blues, jazz big band performances and a new boogie woogie dance workshop at Nolte Academy.

The festival will bring to town some of the most internationally renowned pianist and boogie dancers. Joining Chase Garrett this year will be: Joe Smith & the Spicy Pickles Vintage Jazz Band, Daryl Davis, Balazs Daniel, The CR Jazz Big Band led by Al Naylor, Rasmus & Tove Holmqvist, George Bedard, Craig Dove, and Josh Duffee.

Iowa City native Chase Garrett organized the first Blues Boogie & Woogie Piano Stomp at the Englert in 2010, and downtown Iowa City has remained the event’s primary stomping ground since. This year, performances will take place at the Englert while the Nolte Academy hosts dance workshops. A boogie dance after-party will take place at the Sheraton Hotel.
