Join a melting pot of young and old: Loungers, Kittens, Boppers and Hoppers from Sacramento to Santa Cruz. Jumpin' since 1999, Voted 2007 Best Swing Dance in the Bay by SF Weekly.
Run by Tanoa Stewart of A-Town Agency, we also run special weekend/out of town band shows with Rockabilly, Swing, Jump Blues and more! Roots music for dancing at a venue with a large dance floor, full bar and is all-ages!
Ray Collins Hot Club from Germany plays the blues, jazz and rock?n?roll of the stars from the past: Wynonie Harris, Big Jay Mc Neely, Bullmoose Jackson and more.
Call it jump blues, call it swing, call it Rock?n?Roll? whatever you title this music doesn?t matter. What does matter, is that it feels really good.
Their driving rhythm, wild horn section and good tunes plays to an enormous international interest. The effect on the audience is always the same: You gotta Jump and Shout! So if you wanna have a ball, make sure you?ll be there when the Hot Club is coming to your town!
Opening the show, The Hi-Rhythm Hustlers from the East Bay, CA, were formed out of a desire to re-ignite the energetic dance music from the R&B, Doo Wop and Rock & Roll eras.
