Swingin’ with King Louie!

Category: dances

This week, BOSTON SWING CENTRAL is Swinging with King Louie!  Not Louis XIV, but rather Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan and Louis Prima!  We’ll have the superlative Louis Armstrong catalog, the jump blues of Louis Jordan, and that Vegas kitsch of Louis Prima to delight your ears all night long.  Sounds like a winning combination to us!

Our instructors tonight will be the phenomenal Amanda Gruhl and Shawn Hershey of It’s All Swing studios!  This is a dynamic duo that we absolutely adore for many reasons, not the least of which is the amount of thought and care they put into the development of their revolutionary teaching style.  Come see what they have to offer you this week!

Lesson 8-9pm / Dancing 9pm-12am
$10 / $8 for students (with valid ID) and seniors

Did you know…?

  • Louis Armstrong was nicknamed Satchmo.
  • Louis Jordan hailed from Arkansas and he is often credited with penning the first rock and roll song, called “Saturday Night Fish Fry”.
  • Louis Prima is the voice of everybody’s favorite swingin’ orangutan and inspiration for this night: King Louie from Disney’s animated classic, “The Jungle Book”!
