"Tom Nutile Big Band"
Think Basie and Sinatra, Benny Goodman and Peggy Lee. The Tom Nutile Big Band has made a big name for itself recently in the New England Swing Dancing circuit. With their roots are in the swing era of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, this 15 pc band's mission is to entertain!

- Beginner
- Intermediate with Mike Jonas
(see below for more details about the lessons)


Dear Swing City Patrons!

For those of you that missed it, last week "Dave B's Hot Shots" played a superb night! We know that some bands are going to draw crowds just because many people know who they are. However, a word of encouragement for those that aren't certain: trust us! Please don't stay home on Swing City nights just because you're not familiar with the band. They are all solid!


"Tom Nutile Big Band"
Friday at Huron Ave.

Swing City is delighted to bring back the Tom Nutile Big Band, after a several full house shows over the last year and lots of thumbs up by many of our regular attendees.

Count on a great night of dancing , lessons, friends, and fun times!

Dance lessons at Swing City

New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries, we've got something for everyone!

Join us for a beginner swing lesson, or if you're a more experienced dancer, we offer a concurrent intermediate class. Classes begin at 8pm promptly, so be sure to arruve a few minutes early.

Classes have been HUGE lately, so be sure to come for those. Beginner and intermediate levels are concurrent so most of our regular dancers will be able to take a non-beginner class with our rotation of some of Boston's top dance instructors, yet still bring your friends who might be more comfortable at a the intro level. Moreover, the classes are a GREAT way to meet people if you're new to the scene, single, or just feeling social!

The intro class will be single step East Coast, while the intermediate class generally assumes you can dance a triple step and are comfortable with a variety of basic moves. The intermediate class will be different each week, selecting from styles that include Lindy, Balboa, Charleston, and more, and sometimes features guest instructors.

If either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one can just switch to the other one as needed.

Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venue in town!

- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Juice, Soda, and Water available, plus snacks
- Great Floor (one patron was memorably giddy with excitement! thx)

8:00pm: Beginner and Intermediate Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until 12:00pm

So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live music, dancing, lots of cool fun people of all ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great night out for only $16 ($12 with college ID), and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's official Cheap Date."
