This Week's Update
Swing City Continues to "regrow" after all
the relocation maddness! Thanks for all who have been
supporting us. It also appears that one of the other
competing Friday night swing dances is closed for the
balance of October, so hopefully we'll accelerate that
trend. Wrote one person about last week:
Velvet Elvis was the BEST band that I've heard
in a long time! Every dance was danceable and it seemed
that everyone had a great time. Very good mix of fast
and slow songs. Please past this compliment on to the
band; I hope that you have them play again.
That only goes to show that while no band can please
all the people all the time, our bands certainly can
please most people most of the time. Thanks for writing!
(If you have comments of your own about any night, we'd
love to have them! Please let us know by email or on
Soo...! This Friday we have the Swing City debut of
Roger Ceresi's All Starz, definitely a seasoned swing
band. Additionally, ever sweet and popilar Dee and John
Soares are back in the Annex for Country 2-Step/California
Mix! We hope you'll join us tonight.
And... please invite all your friends! Word of mouth
is our best advertising.
Getting there: Quite a few people
have griped about finding the City Club. I ask them
how they got there, and they all say, "I used my
GPS". BAD IDEA. Trust me, it's REALLY EASY if you
just follow our
directions. We're just off the higway. Please don't
use your GPS!! It will take you on the scenic shortcut.
For those people coming from western 'burbs, just take
Mass Pike to I-93 North, take exit 28, make a left,
and left again at the second light, and park. It's maybe
10-15 minutes from Newton Corner.

The new place is the Somerville City Club, at 20 Innerbelt

In fact it's only a little over a mile away from the Greek
Church location and a few miles down the highway from
