DJ Party with DJs Katie Piselli and Mike Hibarger

Join us for a swing dance with our local DJs!

Katie Piselli (first set)

Katie loves to mix the old with the new. No matter what decade they’re from, she loves jazz songs with great rhythm and bass, killer vocalists, memorable melodies, and distinct instrumentals that inspire the imagination. (She also LOVES a good line dance or two.) As a regular social swing dancer and teacher in the Boston area, Katie particularly enjoys finding super swingin’ music for new dancers. To all of you on the floor, if you’re having fun, you’re doing it right.

Mike Hibarger (second set)

Mike H is a regular DJ at Boston Swing Central!  There are about 86 years of recorded swing music and DJ Mike H dips into his diverse collection to play a little something for everyone from every era.  He is delighted when he plays a song and people come up and ask him “what’s that song?” because they want to get the track.

The Swing Legacy

The Swing Legacy, a six piece “little big band” has been a fixture of the Boston swing dance scene since 1991 and BSC since the beginning, playing with a style informed by the great big bands from the swing era. Their repertoire concentrates on classic big band swing music including many Duke Ellington and Count Basie numbers ideal for Lindy Hop and swing dancing. Much of their great catalog of songs showcases their phenomenal singer, Debby Larkin. It promises to be a night full of killer-diller arrangements that will keep you dancing all night long!

Justin Meyer & The Meyertet

Justin Meyer is the bassist for the Phil McGowan & Easy Winners amongst many other projects and he has been booking the Easy Winners when Phil is not available. So we have encouraged him to spin off this new found band leadership into his own Meyertet. They debuted at BSC recently and by popular demand, they’re back!
