      ** Macy Blackman & the Mighty Fines (http:///www.macyblackman.com)
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Plus DJ Arnold Cabreza

      Music this Wednesday, 8/21: Macy Blackman & the Mighty Fines play music that blends early New Orleans Jazz and the R&B of the early '50's. Led by pianist/vocalist Macy Blackman - whose resume includes playing backup with the Drifters and the Coasters - the band's philosophy is that "if [we don't] make you move your feet, it's amazing you got here at all!"

      In the DJ Booth: Arnold discovered swing music in the late 90s during the swing revival and started dancing shortly after. You can usually find him dancing wherever swing music is playing around the Bay Area. He's DJed at the SF Balboa Festival, Fillmore Jazz Festival and For Dancers Only, as well as the 2012 Munich Lindy Exchange!
