September 20 LIVE BAND! Moonshine Rhythm Club

 

Live Band Night on September 20th featuring the Moonshine Rhythm Club!

Moonshine Rhythm Club’s sound draws on the guitar-driven, acoustic fire of gypsy jazz, as well as the slow burn and laid-back groove of later artists like Count Basie and Nat “King” Cole. They bring old-school swing & jazz to life as they seek out deep cuts from the 30s and 40s and distill them into their signature sound. http://moonshinerhythmclub.com/

All About Our Swingin’ Wednesdays

  • We rotate several DJs so the music is never stale.
  • We host a beginner lesson from 7:30 – 8 PM.
  • No partner necessary! We change partners during the lesson for lots of practice.

Our dance floor can get crowded, so please watch out when attempting aerials and low dips.

Please cooperate if we have to ask you to wait until later in the night when the floor clears so you have space for your special moves.
