Dexter Romweber & the New Romans, Countdown Quartet 

When: Sat., June 12, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $7–$8

The New Romans are the star-studded, big-band revue of longtime duo-half Dexter Romweber. The early garage and rockabilly inspirations of his Flat Duo Jets time seep into a framework built around old jazz and primal blues, recasting Romweber's weathered gruffness into the slinky, closing time moods of smoky pool halls and seedy night clubs. Recently rejuvenated Raleigh horn combo Countdown Quartet swings hard in the leadoff slot, reviving a spirited batch of originals that fit right in with its retro blend of jazz, funk, R&B and New Orleans brass band tunes. —Spencer Griffith
