Gary Baus will Once again be joining us at the Ballydehob Jazz Festival,both DJing and blowing his sax about the village. Gary was a huge hit at the festival Hall shindig last year and we’re very happy to welcome him back
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, as opposed to Baltimore, West Cork, Gary has graced many welcoming venues for the last 13 years as a saxophonist and dj in his adopted home of Ireland. He has a passion for American music of the early 20th century and in 2002 he founded the legendary swing dance night ‘Doubletime’ in Cork City to great acclaim. He will spin the best big band swing jazz of the 1930’s and 40’s. The kind of jazz that gets you up so you can really get down.
Gary will be playing several times over the festival – he’ll be doing DJ at the prohibition Party on Saturday night in The Community Hall. He’ll be in Levis Corner House on Sunday at 10pm and he’ll be reappearing in Levis on Monday night for the closing party.
