The Hot Sardines were last in East Lansing two years ago at the 500 plus seat Wharton Center Pasant Theater.  The show was a sell out, and the auditorium was filled with enthusiastic fans.

This time the popular retro jazz group will appear in the 2500 seat great Hall, and Wharton is expecting another sell out.

The Hot Sardines are an eight piece jazz band and has been touring for nearly three years.  They have about 100 gigs per year throughout the world and is filling up venues.

The Hot Sardines will perform Thursday night at the Wharton Center in East Lansing.  Show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at whartoncenter.com.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
