Exciting LIVE Music Dance on SUNDAY night on the east side. ONLY one time per month so do miss it. (Buy tickets by ph at 33% off, by 4:30pm the Friday before.) The organizer, band leader, and professional tap dancer is a great Christian guy. He put his own band together of 7 top Seattle area musicians just for this dance. We went for the last 2 months, WOW WOW WOW. Excellent swing dance band. Come support the ONLY LIVE music swing dance on a Sunday night. There were age 18 Lindy Hoppers to 70 year old pros in this FUN crowd.
WHAT: A monthly dance on the Eastside! featuring live music by TIM J HICKEY & NICKEL POT JOE SWING SEPTET with this month's special guest the Polka Dot Janes and The Tap Jam Shim Sham.
The Polka Dot Janes were the guests at a prior dance we attended. THYE ARE REALLY GREAT. Wonderful fun harmonies in the style of the Andrew Sisters from the 1940's who did the famous song 'Boggie Woggie Bugle Boy Of Company B'.
The band plays vintage music of the 20's 30's and 40's and original dance tunes of Tim J Hickey. Great for Swing, Lindy, Balboa, Blues & Foxtrot dancing.
