Calling All Zombies X with Phil McGowan & The Easy Winners

Calling All Zombies! It’s time to heed the bell toll for another ghastly, ghoulish and grim Halloween party at Boston Swing Central! This year we’ll dance the night away to our featured band which hasn’t been booked yet! The lesson before the band will feature the creeeeepy choreography of Michael Jackson’s Thriller line dance! To show of your mad MJ skills, Thriller will be performed later on in the evening (performing is, of course, optional).

For our musical inspiration we welcome local favorites, Phil McGowan & The Easy Winners! With their New Orleans inspired hot jazz tunes, they will get you out onto the floor all night! The Easy Winners always get the crowd moving when they play for us and and this Friday will be no exception. Digging deep into their catalog of hits from the past, they’ll light fire to tunes like the 1921 Eddie Cantor hit: “Margie” and Louis Armstrong’s “You Rascal You”.
