"Hosting Swing and Lindy Hop Dancing in Boston since 1994"

Saturday, August 22 at Huron Ave:
"Eight to the Bar"
ETTB is perennially one of the biggest drawing bands at Swing City, renowned across New England. Expect the best! "Their music is fun and always danceable. The vocals alternate with excellent solos by Ms. Lyon (on piano and organ), Collin Tilton (tenor, flute and clarinet), and guitarist Tom Whalen. Fine support is contributed by bassist Michael Corsini, drummer Shawn Meehan and percussionist Brinna Jones."

Featuring their new album, "Bring it and Swing It!"


- Beginner (Intro Swing)

Dear Swing City Patrons,

Just a heads up: we will be closed on Aug, 29, so be sure to join us this week. The next dance after that will be on Sept. 12.

"Eight to the Bar" at Swing City this Saturday

CD Release Dance for their new Album, "Bring It and Swing It!"

Join us for a great night of dancing with one of New England's most popular bands, with some great new tracks off their album.

Reminder as well--be sure to check out the new "Free Dance Studio", with advanced beginner/intermediate Swing/Charleston lessons on Thursdays. (note: we are no longer offering this lesson at Swing City on the nights of dances, though the intro lesson will be taught as usual.)

And as usual, Mike's "famous" free, fresh, hot popcorn.

Hope to see you there!
