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:
