DJ Night with DJs Kevin Lin and Stan Yen

Category: dances

Join us for a swing dance with our local Boston DJs!


Kevin Lin

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!”

Stan Yen

Although he started swing dancing in 1997, Stan can still remember being captivated by Duke Ellington’s East St. Louis Toodle-Oo and Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue in a college class almost 10 years earlier. He started DJing out of necessity in 2010 when he and his wife, July, decided to grow the Balboa scene in the Boston area and needed to provide music for practices. Since then, he’s DJ’d locally at MNP, Uptown Swing and the BBJ in Providence while continuing to be the “House DJ” for Boston Balboa’s regular events. Recently, he was also the strictly competition and post-band DJ at the Great Lakes Balboa Escape in Chicago.

He has a thing for xylophones and songs about food or with unusual lyrics. He likes to stick with artists from the original Swing Era (with a particular fondness for the late 1930s), but that hasn’t stopped him from occasionally playing more contemporary songs so long as they make him want to dance — he hopes they’ll make you want to dance too.
