Uptown Swing Dance

Saturday, March 21, 2015
Shawn Hershey, Josh Fialkoff & The Fried Bananas
Boston Tea Party Special Deal: Boston Tea Party had to move their event to fall on our dance date this year, however, they are offering a special deal to all attendees. Purchase a weekend pass to BTP and you also receive free admission to Uptown Swing! That’s two dances for the price of one on Saturday night. All you have to do is show your wristband, sign in, and dance to the fabulous Fried Bananas! BTP will be going all night so there will be plenty of time to dance the night away.

Uptown Swing is excited to welcome Shawn Hershey, Josh Fialkoff & The Fried Bananas to our March dance! Shawn first created the Fried Bananas back in his Boston days and we had some great nights dancing to them. Josh also played for us with his own previous band. Now these two have teamed up with a whole new group. They played at the last Montréal DanceFest and had the place swingin’ hard and we’ve been trying ever since to get them back to Boston!

Admission: $18 ($14 with Student ID)

Solomon Douglas Heptet

The brand-new Solomon Douglas Heptet is a tight-swinging little band that plays music inspired by the great later swing small groups and early modernists of the late 1940s. This New York City-based group was founded in September of 2014 by Toronto-born pianist and composer Solomon Douglas, whose various bands have played at hundreds of swing dance and music festivals in North America, Asia, and Australia in the past 15 years. You’ll hear and feel the evidence of his experience as a swing dancer and dance instructor in the deeply swinging groove of his music.
