DJ Night featuring DJs Kevin Lin and Ali Connell

Swing dance with our Boston DJs!

Kevin loves swing dancing, swing music, and loves listening to the music at all waking hours of the day. He has DJ’ed at local venues around Boston including MIT Lindy Hop Society and Monday Night Practice. Some of his favorite bands include Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Chick Webb. Kevin’s goal is to keep the energy high and the dancing fun, and he firmly believes in the saying… “It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing!”

Ali’s first and foremost goal while DJing is to craft a play list that will keep the floor full and happy. Her musical tastes and collection are rooted in her dad’s extensive jazz and blues collection long before she knew how to swing out. Now she could keep you dancing for days with all the Chick, Big Joe, Bessie, and Louie at her fingertips, but don’t be surprised to hear her go off the beaten path to mix it up a bit every once in a while. Ali’s goal is to take your favorites and mix in fresh tunes that you don’t hear as often, to create a swinging set with flow and a variety of tempos.
