Thanksgiving Swing!

Gobble, gobble, gobble! As you emerge from your turkey (or tofurkey, if that’s how you swing), head on over to the Whistle Stop for a Thanksgiving dance party!

The Swing Legacy

The Swing Legacy, a six piece “little big band” has been a fixture of the Boston swing 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!

Here they are playing “Roll ‘Em Pete” for BSC!

Lesson (included in the price of admission): 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dancing: 9:00pm – 12:00am
General Admission: $15
Students and Seniors (with Valid ID): $13

Beantown Swing Orchestra

The 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra will be joining BSC yet again to share their gift of swinging big band tunes! The Beantown Swing Orchestra is known for their stellar performances of vintage Swing Era and Sinatra classics arranged for that big band sound that inspires great, memorable dances. The band even adds their own flair by adding in some original songs and arrangements! And, since the holidays are fast approaching, don’t be surprised if a few holiday tunes make it onto the set list. As usual, the BSO will have some of its well known and talented vocalists along with them!

Check out the below video for their version of Jimmie Lunceford’s “Tain’t What You Do” and see just how fun dancing to the Beantown Swing Orchestra is!

Lesson (included in the price of admission): 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Dancing: 9:00pm – 12:00am
