On Sunday, January 5th, from 1:00-4:00 pm, Edmonton’s big band veterans The Trocadero Orchestra kick off this year’s Swing 'n Skate series at City Hall. Joined by local hep-cats the Sugar Swing Dance Club, this free weekly event open to the public is sure to put the boogie-woogie in your step!
Swing 'n Skate will feature live swing, jazz and big band music in the City Room at City Hall from 1:00-4:00 pm on most Sundays until February 23, 2014. This season’s acts, including Swing Manouche, the Bullies of Basin Street and Don Berner's Little Big Band, are sure to get you jiving – with the friendly help of the Sugar Swing Dance Club! If you’d rather be outdoors, the music will be broadcast directly outside for the enjoyment of ice skaters on City Hall Plaza. Free skate rentals will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
