Friday, Apr 30, 2010 • George Gee in NYC - Barnard College • Not a SDLI Event

Posted by Gilles on 04/28/2010 • Permalink


Break in a new dance floor and enjoy the fabulous tunes of George Gee. Folks, if you can make it to NYC this Friday this sounds like a great event.  George Gee has one of the best swing bands in NYC and it usually costs you at least $20 to see his band (well worth it that price).

IMPORTANT DETAILS:
WHERE: Event Oval, at the Diana Center, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY
(See instructions below)
WHEN: April 30th, 9PM-Midnight
HOW MUCH: $10 for non students, $5 for students

Even if you only have a very small chance of attending, please send an email to with “Columbia Semiformal” in the subject, and your FULL NAME, and the full names of anyone whom you think might attend. That way, we can put your names on the guest list, and you’ll be able to enter the building.

FLUFF AND CHARACTER!:
Hey there, swing fanatics! Barnard College, sister school of Columbia University, has just finished building an incredible student center, which contains a:
brand-spanking new
beautiful
cherry wood paneled
500 person capacity
AUDITORIUM, complete with its own stage and sound system!

Now, we here at CU Swing know that that poor, poor auditorium is going to be wasted on lectures and other boring stuff, so we immediately thought, “Hey! Let’s inaugurate it properly with some good old fashioned SWING MAYHEM!”
And who better to lead us musically (and perhaps even spritually) than the 10pc. GEORGE GEE SWING ORCHESTRA (featuring vocalist John Dokes)!
Now, you might be asking yourself, “What the? A new, spacious, beautiful, hard wood floor? With live music from George Gee himself? This is amazing! But how much does it cost?”
Well, have no fear my friends. CU Swing is by the people, for the people. So, if you’re not a student, this only costs you $10! WHAT!? That’s less than going to the movies!
BUT WAIT! Because CU Swing is by the students, for the students, if you’re a student, you can get in for only $5 dollars! That’s less than most meals! And we accept a student ID from ANY college! So please, people from other swing clubs around the country, come one, come all, to this glorious event!
WOW! This is a lot of information! Don’t worry, true believers, here is a summary and list of instructions.

WHERE: Event Oval, at the Diana Center (See instructions below)
WHEN: April 30th, 9PM-12AM
HOW MUCH: $10 for non students, $5 for students

Directions: Go to 117th and Broadway on the West side of the street. Enter the gates and walk towards the building, but take a right just before the stairs. When you see a statue of a running woman on your right, take a left, but take the next right as soon as you can. Walk around the grass, but continue north. Climb up the stairs, and the first building to your right is the Diana Center. To get to Event Oval, take the elevators down to L1. It will be directly ahead of you.
