I started this group to bridge a gap that I see in the Meetup Communities - a place for those who would like to share information about public music and dance events (social dances (Ballroom, Latin, Swing, Blues, etc.), and live local big band / jazz music) that is not tied to a particular instructor, school, or individual interest. In my own attempt to share information about the events that I produce with my own band, I found myself unable (or worse, not welcome) to share information with groups who were run by people whose personal interests were the sole reason for the existence of the group. While I do run my own big band (http://www.mondaybluesjazz.com) that has two monthly public ballroom dance / concert engagements, I invite any and all people who would like to share information about similar events to post them in my Meetup group. The best way for us all to be successful in our attempt to preserve live big band music and dances with live big bands, in places large enough to provide room for ballroom dancers to apply their lessons in a practical environment, is for us to support one another and share information about events of interest. I invite everyone: musicians, dancers, music lovers, instructors, those curious about something new, etc. to post information about your events on this Meetup group's calendar. I look forward to finding out about fun events that I can attend, and I hope to get to meet some of you at my own events!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
