March 15 LIVE BAND! 9th Street Stompers

 

Live Band Night on March 15th, featuring the 9th Street Stompers!

The 9th Street Stompers are an outfit of well-dressed no-counts chopping on acoustic instruments and singing about life, death, love, and liquor. Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, they cull up the musical scenery of an era when the lines between swing, gypsy jazz, blues, rockabilly, and tango weren’t nearly as hard and fast as the drinking and dancing. Steering clear of much of the novelty and kitsch associated with pre-war music, they choose to demonstrate the modern relevance of their chosen medium.

Haven’t danced before? No Problem. A beginner lesson is included in admission and will get you started to dance the rest of the night. No partner necessary.

7:30 – 8:00 PM : Beginner swing dance lesson
8:00 – 11:00 PM : Dance to the 9th Street Stompers!

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.
