Ginger & The Schnappes | New Jazz and Social Music in the Lehigh Valley

In this Episode, we’re talking with Joe MIxon and Ginger Brew of Ginger and The Schnappes, a six piece jazz band from the Lehigh Valley. 

Ginger and the Schnappes is a star studded affair with Mixon on Guitar, Ginger on Vocals, Brian Bortz on Bass, Dan Twaddell on alto sax, flute, and soprano sax; Vernon Mobley on drums; and Patrick Kerssen on piano.

“Ginger and The Schnappes is a six piece jazz band that swings the great jazz standards. Their broad repertoire covers the great songs from 1920 to 2020 and includes Jazz, Pop, Latin, Country and Blues. Their music is inviting, listenable and danceable.”

We talk about how they formed, promoting during the pandemic, their upcoming shows at Musikfest, their new album social music, and how you can book them for your next gig.

Be sure to see them at Musikfest and check out our Live Stream for August 7 (even if this is after August 7 you can still check it out)
