Christabel & the Jons, DJ Kristy Milliken 

When: Fri., June 3, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

Christabel and the Jons thrive in the space between Bob Wills' Western swing and Django Reinhardt's French gypsy jazz. Dancing fiddle, trumpet and accordion punch up the easygoing rhythm section, while Christa DeCicco stands in front of it all, leading her backing trio on guitar as a jazzy joy bubbles through her warm vocals. It's a timeless sound that somehow never existed. DeCicco's songs seem designed for movement, whether the shuffling six-count of East Coast or the Lindy Hop's driving swing-out. DJ Kristy Milliken spins interstitial music between the two sets to keep dancers on the floor. —Andrew Ritchey
