Jazz Beat: Chris Hazelton's Boogaloo 7 at the Kill Devil Club



Mesh soul with jazz and throw in a little funk, late-'60s and early '70s style — think Lou Donaldson, Grant Green, Lonnie Smith. This group calls the sound boogaloo. Others might call it good ol' booty-shakin' jazz. Chris Hazelton's Boogaloo 7 starts with Hazelton and his Hammond B-3 organ, then adds Nick Howell on trumpet, Nick Roland on alto and tenor saxophones, Brett Jackson on baritone sax, Matt Hopper on guitar, Kevin Frazee on drums and Gary Helm on congas. Saturday night, they shake up the Kill Devil Club in the Power & Light District. And speaking of booty shakin': Between music sets, KC's Burlesque Downtown Underground performs.
