Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five, playing live at the Bainbridge Swing Dance Friday, November 7, at Timmons Elementary School Gymnasium (9595 E. Washington St.; Chagrin Falls, OH 44023), are at home at swing dances, jazz clubs and concert halls alike. They love exploring the roots of jazz and finding creative ways to interpret forgotten songs. Drawing upon the influence of artists such as Bessie Smith, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five bring the intensity and passion of early jazz to every stage they play to put on one heck of a show.
