Swing Aggregation is back at the Lux for Big Band style fun-$10-Sunday Feb 16th

Back at the Lux Lounge for Jump & Swing Sunday on Feb 16th-- Dave Guiney's Swing Aggregation-- a seven-piece "little Big Band" specializing in favourites from the 1930s through '50s. If you love the old Big Band/ Swing era music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, etc, then you will love Swing Aggregation.

Special guest vocalist this time around is the ultra smooth Steve Maddock. I think the the DJ that evening will be Jose (but don't quote me on that; I will edit this post if I find out it's going to be someone else) Free beginner dance lesson with Rob & Alexis of Atomic Radio offered at 7pm, followed by live music until 11pm. $10 cover. Delicious food and drinks available at venue. Reserving early will mean a choice table; I'm going to do that as soon as they open up the reservations.

This is a cross-posting with the Meet Us on the Dance Floor Meet up group.

    Someone was asking last night about swing dance lessons. I've taken some with Rhythm City:
    http://www.rhythmcity.ca/ and there are other options both in Vancouver and New West, easily findable with a google search or on Facebook.

    Thanks Andrea for organizing this event with a nice group of people. Even I can't dance yet I enjoyed the music a lot. The swing Aggregation band is really good.

    I'm sorry the last minutes thing came up so I can't join tonight. Sorry Nancy did you see my email?

      Too bad you couldn't make it Yasuko. Hope to see you another time!

    I really enjoyed this evening and thought Swing Aggregation was better than ever, and with a better mix of songs than previous gigs. I wrote more on the Meet Us on the Dance Floor site, so won't repeat it all here as I suspect many members belong to both sites.
    It was a great pleasure to meet Kate, Nancy, Brigitte and her friend, and also Ye-Fee, with whom I was slightly acquainted from my old ceroc days.

    This dance meetup is a cross-posting, and since I booked the original table reservation, more meetup members have signed up for this event. I have just emailed Alexis Davy of Atomic Radio to see if there are any table reservations still available. so we can have two tables. .... and..... ooops! Kate, I did this before I read your post below! (just now). I will write a follow-up email to Alexis to tell her if she can book that one extra table, that should do the trick.. Between the recent sign-ups and a couple of my friends who want to check it out, there will be about 12 of us, barring 'no-shows'.

    I have just sent a request to reserve another table. Hopefully there is still some space. :-)

    February 16, 2014

  • Kate

    Hi I just RSVP'd yes. I know its last but my plans have just changed. Looking forward to seeing you all their.

    Sounds fun! Wish I could have made it. Enjoy!

    I just got confirmation for a table for six at the Lux Lounge for the evening of the 16th. This includes the four of us signed on through this group, and another two from the other meetup group . Actually, there are another three people, but we will somehow squeeze in another chair... but I hope to be on the dance floor the whole night, so won't need my chair anyway!

    If any other members from this group are planning on attending and would like to book a table, fire off an email to
    [masked]
    for another table reservation.

      Thank you, Andrea. Yes, we can time-share the chairs :-)

      February 11, 2014

    I just emailed Atomic Radio Productions to reserve a table for us for the evening of the 16th.

    I like big band but I'm too shy so might be silent there...forgive me...

    February 10, 2014

    • Andrea

      Yasuko, don't worry about being shy--just enjoy the music. Looking foward to seeing you there. I will reserve a table. Look for the meetup sign.
