Special Event: Frankie Manning 100th Birthday Celebration

Lindy Hoppers around the world will be gathering to celebrate Frankie Manning this May in honor of his 100th birthday! Frankie was a very special person who touched the lives of so many, from first time dancers to seasoned pros. Many of us in Boston were lucky to have met and even gotten to know him prior to his passing in 2009. This year we honor his life and his spirit as we endeavor to emulate the values he passed on.

Big Band Swing

Saturday, February 15, 2014
Beantown Swing Orchestra

The 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra specializes in the performance of vintage Swing Era and Sinatra classics as well as popular and original songs custom arranged for big band. The music of the Swing Era (late 1930s to early 1940s) was created specifically for dancing, with its characteristic and infectious Swing beat and exciting horn arrangements. Most of the BSO musicians and songwriters/arrangers are in their twenties and play with the energy and drive to keep everyone moving on the dance floor. What a special treat to have this wonderful big band back at Uptown Swing!
