USO Night with The White Heat Swing Orchestra

Category: dances

Friday, November 11th is Veteran’s Day and we’d like to say a big Thank You to our Vets (and active service men and women) by throwing a special USO style* swing dance, like they did back during WWII. Though we have no political agenda here at BSC, it seems appropriate to show our respect to those who serve and protect so the rest of us can keep on swingin!

The USO is a private organization that has provided morale and recreational services since 1941. Their first priority has always been supporting America’s troops. USO centers and clubs opened around the world as a “Home Away from Home” for GI’s, and was a place to go for dances and social events.

In the 1940’s big bands were the cat’s pajamas. For this event we’ve got one of Boston’s Best Big Bands, the White Heat Swing Orchestra. They’ll be playing all the classic Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie hits of the 30’s and 40’s. So get dolled up like it’s 1941 and help us say thanks to our military brothers and sisters. White Heat float up and down at the Boston Harbor Hotel and swing hard to Lindy Hop classic: “Digi Digi Doo”!
