Side Street Strutters Perform


Disneyland feature performers for more than two decades and national big band sensation, the Side Street Strutters bring their new production of “Shiny Stockings, featuring Meloney Collins” the Payson High School Auditorium in Payson, Arizona at 7 p.m., Monday, May 6, 2013. Single tickets are $35 as available. Children and students under the age of 18 will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticket holding adult.

Side Street Stutters were formed in 1983 by a group of students at Arizona State University. The Strutters have recorded eight albums; their most recent, Back to Bourbon Street, celebrates their 25th anniversary with a salute to the roots of jazz and the group’s own foundation.

Shiny Stockings features the sultry vocals of Meloney Collins. All orchestrations are created from within the group, and the live show features a tap dancing trumpeter and their signature humor and repartee.
