"Rico Barr and the Jump 'n' Jive Review"
Rico Barr and the Jump 'n' Jive Review is one of New England's Premier Dance Bands. The Band was Nominated as "Swing Band of The Year" by the National Swing Awards. They can be seen on the Concert Stage with their original compositions and arrangements and are in demand throughout New England and beyond.

- Beginner (Intro Swing)

Dear Swing City Patrons,

"Rico Barr and the Jump 'n' Jive Review" this Saturday!

Rico's back, a fantastic danc'n' band. Please join us!

Also, we've got another FREE workshop from Free Dance Studio this week, which is their Line Dancing Workshop. 6-8pm. RSVP here: details

Just a reminder, please bring friends to Swing City! It's not only great fun for all to meet new people, but vital to not just Swing City, but the whole Boston/New England swing dance scene. The "word of mouth" approach from our regular and occasional dancers is by far the most effective way to get the word out.

Cover this week is $18 at the door ($4 off with current/valid student ID)

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

Hope to see you there!
