  • SWING REMIX
    SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 10th, 2016
    Ron Sunshine & His Orchestra
    DJ Odysseus

  • Ron Sunshine & His Orchestra

  • Imagine how the jump-swing bands of the '30s and '40s would sound filtered through the sensibilities of a generation raised on rock and roll. Take a healthy dose of Rhythm & Blues, New Orleans funk, and downhome harmonica stomps; mix with the classics from the era of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole, and Fats Waller; stir in an ever-growing portion of strong original material, and you come up with Ron Sunshine. Audience members of all ages are getting hip to this timely tip.....

  • This is Ron's 4th appearance with us!

  • Specialty Dance Workshops (at the JCC in Manhattan)
    6:30 – Six Count & Beyond Swing Workshop*
    As an advanced beginner dancer we prepare ourselves to learn the eight-count patterns of Lindy Hop, or level three. This is more difficult without a firm grasp of level two, first. This intensive Six-Count Swing review will cover lots of level two patterns and skills in triple steps to get you closer to your Lindy Hop goals. Instructors: Spencer Weisbond and Maria Kelley

    7:30 –Having Fun With The Music Lindy Hop Workshop*
    Lindy Hop Workshop (Pre-Intermediate +) Take your dancing to the next level by really dancing to the music. Learn swing music patterns so you can hit the break! Knowledge of 6 and 8 count patterns will really help - but we can probably teach some fakes.

Jan Marie

  • Jan Marie & The Mean Reds
    All the way from BOSTON, MA, Jan Marie & The Mean Reds join us for the Second Time and we're thrilled to have her back.

"The Mean Reds sound is unique, and combines Jan Marie’s Billie Holiday-esque lag-vocal technique with a growling trumpet and oscillates between tinkling ivories and pounding keys on a Hammond B3 organ. Mixing genres with plentiful ease is their specialty, and their grooves run so deep they can get even the most left-footed of characters tapping their toes on the dancefloor. But don’t take our word for it–see us play out live or play our videos – we’re sure you’ll understand what all the fuss is about..." Jan Marie & The Mean Reds
