Dancing and great big band music in NE Philly

Join the Monday Blues Jazz Orchestra on Sunday June 8, 2014 for an afternoon of great music, great food, and great fun as only we can do it! The band will be back in the Crystal Ballroom this month, and food and drink service will also be available in the room with us (the restaurant will be moved into our room). Be prepared for a day of music in all styles, songs that you know, in ways that you don't ! For those of you who are familiar with us, expect nothing less than a spectacular day of music featuring all of our amazing singers, for those who don't: be prepared to be blown away!

Hailed as "The best kept secret in Ballroom Dancing" by the publisher of “Dance Spotlight" magazine, and "Something Special" and "World-Class" by Philly's own Dr. Bruce Klauber of “ICON” Magazine, JazzBridge, and WRTI fame, the Monday Blues Jazz Orchestra will blow you away with our unique style of music, and our focus on vocalists who are all spectacular in their own right ! Come out and see for yourself ! Experience the area's hottest big band, one that is unlike anything that you have ever seen, in a family-friendly environment that is perfect for both listening and dancing. Enjoy 4 hours of live music, in ALL styles, as only the Monday Blues Jazz Orchestra can provide. Our group of singers will wow you with their vocals, and the band will blow you away with its sound. You'll be amazed by the value of a day out with us! The venue has great food and refreshments available at very reasonable prices.

Is it a concert, a dance, a full-blown theater style show ? We'll let you decide...

This event is open to the public. Reservations are not required, but call ahead seating table reservations are available for groups (inquire about our group discount by writing to us at: [masked]). You can make a table reservation by calling [masked]. Food service is available from 1pm - 7pm.

      Steph, The name of the band came from it's creation - a way for the scientists at RCA's satellite division to combat the "Monday Blues", so no, we're not a blues band (though we do play some blues music). While we ARE a big band by definition, given our size and basic instrumentation, we are unlike anything that anyone has seen before. We do not play old "swing music", we play a very contemporary mix of songs that people know, including a lot of modern rock, pop, disco, and other music - almost all of it featuring our vocalists. This time around, we will have 2 of our 4 singers with us, and they will handle most of the music for the 4 hours that we are there. Hopefully we will see you on Sunday !
