Dear Swing City Patrons,

"Sweet Willie D and the Continental Walk" this Saturday

We are excited to be bringing Sweet Willie D back to Swing City. Though his band were regulars at Swing City for many years, he hasn't gigged for some time and we are glad we could find a way to get him back! Please don't miss this rare opportunity to hear the amazing sound of Sweet Willie D and the Contiental Walk

Also, we've got another FREE workshop from Free Dance Studio this week from 6-8pm. RSVP here: details

Just a reminder, please bring friends to Swing City! It's not only great fun for all to meet new people, but vital to Swing City and the whole Boston/New England swing dance scene. The "word of mouth" approach from our regular and occasional dancers is by far the most effective way to get the word out.

Hope to see you there!
