April 12 LIVE BAND! Moonshine Rhythm Club


Live Band Night on April 12th, featuring the Moonshine Rhythm Club!

Moonshine Rhythm Club brings old-school swing and jazz to life with joyful arrangements and energetic playing that makes this vintage music sound like it was written this morning. The boys seek out deep cuts from the 30s and 40s, take their favorite parts from classic big band recordings, and distill them into their signature sound. That 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. On top of this lays classy and hip vocals with a lighthearted humor.

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 Moonshine Rhythm Club!

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.
