In order to raise funds for next year’s Hot Rhythm Holiday, we are hosting a jazz and swing dance evening called “A
Night on Jazz Babies Island.” This event provides a historical and cultural link to our musical past, educating the
community while maintaining these art forms in a lively and fresh manner. Aunt Ruby’s Sweet Jazz Babies are one
of Austin’s premier early jazz bands. They will be hosting an evening in which patrons will step into another era and
enter the fantastical world of the Jazz Babies.
This event is organized in partnership with Lake Austin Riverboats and Aunt Ruby’s Sweet Jazz Babies. Both groups
are donating time and resources to make this event possible. This activity will be funded by entrance fees from the
patrons attending. This activity will consume a minority of of the Hot Rhythm Foundation’s time (~%5 for 2012). The
event website can be found at www.jazzbabiesisland.com.
