Dear Swing City Patrons!
Week at Swing City: "Compaq Big Band"
SATURDAY at Huron Ave
Compaq Big Band returns to the stage at Swing City/Huron
this Saturday! You're in for a treat if you're not familiar
with this band, as they feature the rich big band sound
of 20+ musicians and some beautiful vocals as well.
Compaq has been gigging at Swing City for many years,
so count on a solid swing dancer's repetoire.
On Our Schedule and Reorganization
It's been clear for a while that Boston's scene is
not capable of supporting two swing dances on Fridays,
especially within as close proximity as it one can get
no less. So we're readujusting Swing City's schedule
to better suit the situation. In general, Swing City
will be open at Huron Ave on the 1st Saturday, 3rd Friday,
and 5th Saturday on months when there is one, in addition
to periodic special events.
We're also bidding farewell to the Somerville City
Club,which has been a cool venue but unfortunately with
just enough unsolvable problems to keep enough people
away. Finding a good venue in Boston is really the crux
of the problem that Swing City has suffered from since
the original Huron Ave VFW was demolished. We'll be
working on improving the vibe at Huron Ave further going
Thanks everyone for your support as our journey continues...!
lessons at Swing City
New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries,
we've got something for everyone!
Mike Jonas will be teaching the intermediate lesson
this week and DJing the breaks for you. Karen Leeds
returns to teach the beginner class. Both are at 7:45.
Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to come for
those. Beginner and intermediate levels are concurrent,
so you can find a class that suits you and still bring
your friends who might be at a different level. Plus,
the classes are a GREAT way to meet people if you're
new to the scene.
Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venues in town!
- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Full Bar, ~$4 cocktails (at City Club venue only)
- Great Floors (one patron was giddy with excitement
- Easy "T" Access (at City Club venue only)
7:30pm: Beginner and Intermediate
Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until ~12:00am or when people leave
The great thing about the new intermediate lessons
program is that the bulk of our regular dancers will
be able to take a non-beginner class with our
rotation of Boston's top dance instructors, while still
being able to bring beginner friends for the intro lesson.
The intro class will be single step East Coast, while
the intermediate class will be taught in triple-step
and sometimes will include some Lindy and more. The
intermediate class will be different each week. Furthermore,
if either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one
can just switch to the other one as needed.
So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live
music, dancing, affordable cocktails when we're at the
City Club (yes, $4!), lots of cool fun people of all
ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great
night out for only $15 ($10 with college ID), the cheapest
cocktails in town, and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's
official Cheap Date."
