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

Saturday, Sept. 26 at Huron Ave:
Bombay Jim and the Swinging Sapphires
Always a Swing City favortite, "featuring the retro-swing music of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brian Setzer, Cab Callaway, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, and the great standard swing music of Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Count Basie, and Duke Ellington. The selections are a mixture of new and old, the old ones being some of the best from the past, from very lively charts. Just plain fun from start to finish."


- Beginner (Intro Swing)
