June 20: Hot Cat Jazz Band
with Instructor/DJ "Slick Mike"
Dear Swing City Patrons!
Ross Tucker's Hot Cat Jazz Band is
featured this Friday, up in Boston from Connecticut, very
HOT! Plus, "Slick Mike" is back in the house,
after having taken a break for his "nuptials".
See you Friday for another fun night of dancing, socializing,
music, and drinks!
(The Annex is still closed, but we expect
to open it again next week for West Coast with Paolo Piselli.
Stay tuned for more on that.)
- Doors open at 7:30, dancing until 1am
- FULL BAR (valid 21+ ID to drink)
- Ample free lot-parking
- Great dance floor, fabulous sound, and superb ambiance
in the "Swing City Ballroom"
Appeal to our Patrons: Please help
support the bar. As Swing dancers we all know we're
not a "drinking crowd", but the host venue really
does depend on beverage sales (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)
to keep the rent and hence the cover charge affordable.
We are privileged to have this nice hall, so if you have
the means, please try to patronize the bar with a modest
$5 in food & beverage purchases. The hall is run by
volunteers and 100% of the bar's profit goes to support
the church's expenses in having us there.
What people are saying:
"It was one of the best swing dances
I have attended in well over a year (and I dance several
times a week)."
"Nice people all w/good intentions. From the
person at door to anyone I would ask questions; all have
positive,upbeat(no pun intended) attitudes. And this love
of Swing Dancing is obvious by all assistance kindly offered
and rendered. Five Stars."
