WESTPORT — A classic band brought a swinging sound to the Westport Center for Senior Activities Sunday afternoon.

Eight to the Bar, a six-piece combo, drew a full house on their return to Westport, featuring a blend of jazz, bop, swing and boogie.

“I started it in 1975,” said founder Cynthia Lyon of Northford, who plays keyboard and sings. “I was made to do this.”

Lyon said the band struggled initially, “but after a while something just clicked and it’s been clicking ever since.”
