SEPTEMBER SPECIAL: Mention that you are from a Meetup group and receive $5 off admission at the door. That's a 33% discount off the regular per-person door charge for 4 hours of music provided by the area's hottest big band - the Monday Blues Jazz Orchestra.
Come to the Crystal Ballroom at Cannstatter on Sunday August 10, 2014 from 3-7 PM and spend the afternoon in a classic "Night Club", a forgotten experience of years gone by. Enjoy a grand ballroom with tables setup so that you can sit and talk, eat, listen, and dance to a 23 piece big band, with a full menu and bar service (featuring reasonably priced meals and drinks), and a huge dance floor should you get the urge to get up and dance
Do you think that big band music is not for you ? Think again ! The Monday Blues Jazz Orchestra is a big band unlike anything that you have ever experienced. We do not play old swing music steeped in nostalgia, but rather, we play songs that you know in ways that you don't. In addition to classic melodies and music from the Great American Songbook, we perform Rock,Pop, R&B, Latin (all styles), and Disco hits - all featuring our group of 5 singers ! There is very little instrumental-only music as a part of one of our shows, it all features one (or more) of our spectacular vocalists singing the songs you know
The band features some of Philadelphia's favorites: Jeannie Brooks, Deborah Massa, Andrea L'Amy, Brian Pastor, Skip Spratt (a special guest this month), Ed Etkins (a special guest this month), Dave McGraw, Mark Amentt, Brent Bailey, and many more ! Not only is our music fun to listen to, but serious ballroom dancers continue to tell us that dancing with us is an experience unlike any other
Come to Cannstatter (9130 Academy Road Philadelphia, PA 19114) and have an amazing day of fun in a family friendly environment at a very reasonable cost ! As always, children under 12 are free !
