DJ Night with DJs Cari, Mike and Emily

Join us for a swing dance featuring our local Boston DJs!

DJs Cari Meisel, Mike Hibarger and Emily Kasman (making her DJ debut) will keep you all swinging out this Friday.

Cari Meisel – A huge part of Cari’s love of the dance comes from a love of the music – from old to new, big band to small combo, she loves it all! As a DJ, Cari aims to spread this love by playing great music and letting dancers do what they do best.

Mike H is a regular DJ at Boston Swing Central! There are about 84 years of recorded swing music and DJ Mike H dips into his diverse collection to play a little something for everyone from every era.

Emily Kasman – Emily joined the University of Rochester’s swing dance club in the fall of 2011 for their beginner lessons. Before she knew it, she was learning the Tranky Doo, performing routines at school events, and traveling for workshop and exchange weekends. Emily was excited to find that moving to Boston in the summer of 2013 would mean even more lindy hop! Although for a long time Emily’s swing music collection consisted only of Gordon Webster’s Rochester and Boston albums, she has recently been building up her collection and is ready for her BSC debut!

Dirty Water Thursday: Albanie and Her Fellas

A native of Monroe, Louisiana, Albanie Faletta was in her formative years exposed to the local dance music of Louisiana: the sounds of cajun, zydeco, blues and gospel musics at festivals and backyard parties. Shortly after relocating with her family to San Marcos, Texas at the age of nine, Albanie began taking guitar lessons and developing an interest in acoustic-roots and electric blues, punk rock, and hair metal.  Albanie began her love and study of early American Jazz as a freshman in highschool in Wimberley, Texas, when she was exposed to the Parisian Romani guitarist Django Reinhardt. Listening fervently to recordings of Reinhardt, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Fats Waller, and other such great figures of jazz, she began to develop her feel for swing. Soon she was performing alongside mentors and other players of the Austin scene where she lived and performed in the years after high school. In the summer of 2013 Albanie relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana, where she is currently living and performing with various traditional jazz and swing ensembles.

Lesson (included w/ price of admission): 7:30pm – 8:30pm
Swing Dancing: 8:30pm – 12:00am

Dirty Water Friday: Jonathan Doyle Swingtet with Gordon Webster

Tonight, all the way from Austin, Texas, the Jonathan Doyle Swingtet is playing their fantastic swing charts for us! And guess who’s playing with them? Boston favorite, Gordon Webster!

Jonathan, the Swingtet’s band leader, clarinetist, saxophonist, composer, and arranger, leans towards crafting original material and playing with bands that are hot, swinging, and danceable; rooted yet distinct.

Gordon is one of the most sought after musicians in the Lindy Hop world! His tremendous musicianship and passion, supported by his first-hand knowledge of social dancing, have inspired lindy hoppers at hundreds of dance events worldwide. Drawing on influences as diverse as Fats Waller, Count Basie, Oscar Peterson and Gene Harris, Webster serves up a smorgasbord of styles unified by one characteristic: irresistible danceability.
