Live Band Night on August 23rd, 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 East Coast Swing dance lesson is included in admission and will get you started to dance the rest of the night. No partner necessary.
