Uptown Swing Dance

Uptown Swing is excited to welcome back the Dan Fox Foxtet! The Foxtet is a six piece band led by trombonist Dan Fox and comprised of some of the best local musicians who have decades of combined experience playing for swing dancers. Fox has worked as a sideman with top swing musicians such as Jonathan Stout, Adrian Cunningham, The Lowdown Stompers and Michael Gamble. Expect a rock-solid beat, an awesome vocalist and sweet, swinging horns playing tunes from the ’20’s, ’30’s and ‘40’s at just the right tempos. We’re looking forward to a wonderful night of dancing.

Beantown Swing Orchestra

The 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra specializes in performing big band dance charts from the Swing Era (1935-1946), all transcribed from the original vintage recordings by trumpeter Danny Fratina. In order to achieve its mission of perpetuating this timeless music by exposing it to younger generations, the band trains high school students and provides them with vintage 1930s instruments to achieve the true sound of that period. With most of its musicians and staff in their teens and twenties, Beantown Swing Orchestra is a true representation of the young and energetic big bands of the Swing Era.

What a special treat to have this wonderful big band back at Uptown Swing!

 
Admission: $16 ($12 with Student ID)
