Tuesday, Jun 29, 2010 • SDLI Dance CANCELLED - Road Trip to Lincoln Center!!! •
Folks, the Battle of Bands that launches Midsummer Night Swing is just too good to miss so we’ve cancelled our 6/29 dance and will be heading out to NYC for two FABULOUS BANDS. It just doesn’t get much better than this. ROAD TRIP!!!
Battle of the Bands:
The George Gee Swing Orchestra vs.
The Bill Elliott Swing Orchestra

Dance Lesson at 6:30, Live Music at 7:30
Which coast swings harder? Jazz musicians ceded East Coast/West Coast squabbles to hip-hoppers some time ago, but Midsummer Night Swing’s season kickoff is a high-octane rematch that proves old feuds die hard. Ten years ago on a hugely successful tour, hometown Count Basie disciple George Gee and hot L.A. pianist Bill Elliott put the question to the most discerning audiences of all: dancers. The gauntlet has been thrown down once again. Come decide who gets bragging rights.

Tix are $17, really a great bargain for this much talent. If that’s too steep, you can dance & listen for free on the smooth pavement in the park. You won’t be able to see the band, but you can hear them just fine and usually there are plenty of dancers outside as well.
