Details below.....I will get there early and grab a table so look for the ESV Meetup Sign.

Dashing Dolls and Dapper Dudes, you are invited to the West Coast finest Soiree's party - Speakeasy Electro Swing! We'll take over Ginger 62 for a night of glamour, music, dance and debauchery.

Monday is a day off.

Speakeasy Electro Swing night is where the sounds and styles of the Prohibition Era are turned on their head and smuggled into the 21st century. With reworks ranging from HOUSE & ELECTRO to DUBSTEP, DRUM & BASS and HIP HOP, the genre boldly brings the sounds, spirit and fashion of the 1920s, 30s & 40s back to life with a modern dance floor edge.

As always a courtesy for you a free Charleston/Foxtrot dance lesson. Come early, dance lesson at 9:15 pm.

On the Bill:

Jen Hodge All Stars - Vancouver bassist Jennifer Hodge leads this pack of talented young musicians with a passion for playing raucous, sassy jazz that’s reminiscent of the prohibition era. Think 20’s, 30’s, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, Bob Wills, speakeasies, roadhouses, underground parties…you get the idea. Guaranteed to be great fun! www.myspace.com/jenhodgebass

Smoky Burlesque Striptease by Cara Milk with Hollywood Golden Age era number. Cara is stunning beauty with a glowing heart, a warm smile and and legs all the way to the milky way.

"Pure Addiction" will play some finest Burlesque/House Swing music.

Our special guest from England - Lord Justice (Kallias / PMF)
LordJustice brings to you the finest in British Electro-Swing. Old fashioned as he is, he mixes everything per hand, providing a 1920s retrospective spanning everything with a jive, a groove or a swing to it. Obscure samples and cinematic breaks is what sets LordJustice apart from the rest, this vinyl archaeologist is someone definitely not to be missed.
