Deke & The Whippersnappers

Deke’s talented quartet plays Western swing, hillbilly and honky tonk in a vintage style that covers a wide variety of classic artists, with a repertoire that includes his swingin’ originals. We call it Hillbilly Jazz.

The group will perform danceable covers by artists like Webb Pierce, Ray Price and Skeets McDonald.

Don’t miss this happening hillbilly / western swing scene by the author of the recent book on Merle Travis, “16 Tons.”

See this show up close and personal at Campus Jax, 3950 Campus Dr. in Newport Beach at 5 pm on a Sunday evening.

Doors open at 3:30

All ages, free parking, full dinner menu and cabaret seating at tables.

About the Venue: Campus JAX

“Newport Beach’s only supper club”, Campus JAX features cabaret-style shows with dining, dancing, and seating at tables or the bar in an intimate listening room.

Christopher Burkardt’s Stellar Shows (some of you may remember their shows at Don the Beachcomber) puts on a good number of Swing-danceable bands there every month. There is a large stage and good dance floor.

It is a supper club so a purchase is required, but there is no drink minimum. Food is Cajun/Creole and gets an impressive four-and-a-half stars on Yelp. Dinner prices range from $10-$18. Of course, there’s also a full bar.

They put out multiple water tanks for dancers. Everybody has a seat – but you need not stay in your seats!
