Concert Oct 28 @ The Whiting

Tapology Concert is a presentation of hot jazz and exciting dancers raising funds for Flint's Children of Challenge. For 14 years this concert and festival production has been working to bring formal arts and dance training to schools and students who had none.

But don't think that lofty purpose equals boring. This concert is known for electric performances and the absolute hottest Jazz band to be found south of New York City!

“The McFadden Brothers” are world-class entertainers whose career spans across many countries and venues. Their unique style and abilities have earned them the label as being a “triple threat,” in that they are both accomplished singers, tap dancers and musicians. Their show encompasses their own unique style of entertainment that only real-life brothers can. Their dancing style has that silken touch.

Topped off by their effortless-looking, but extremely difficult instrument playing. They have the ability many long for but few obtain.
