Vote for Swing! w/ DJs Miranda Lank and Dang Mai

Category: dances
We asked our two DJs for the evening to come up with their own candidates for a night we’re calling Vote for Swing!  DJ Miranda Lank selected  Thomas “Fats” Waller, the Harlem pianist and composer who helped to invent the art form we know as jazz.   And DJ Dang Mai will get you swaying to the earthy, authentic voice of “Lady Day” Billie Holiday, vocalist for Swing band legends like Count Basie and Artie Shaw.  Who would win in this swing music election?  We think the answer is everyone!  Come on out and Vote for Swing!

Miranda Lank

Miranda (aka DJ Legs Magoo) became addicted to dancing during her high school days in South Carolina and with DJing soon after. Along with DJing regularly at all three of South Carolina’s swing scenes, she has DJed for several lindy hop and blues events in the state, including Charleston Lindy Exchange, Greenville Lindy Exchange, Holy City Blues Exchange, and Swing Into Spring. Her favorite part about spinning tunes is inspiring people to get on the dance floor.

Dang Mai

Dang’s first foray into swing dancing happened in 2011 when he was lured in by a LivingSocial deal for a New School Swing class. Little did he know how many places that deal would take him, how many dancing friends he would make, and how many swing CDs he would end up hoarding as a result. His collection of music – ranging from the original 30s big bands such as Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Count Basie to modern swing bands like Jonathan Stout, Mint Julep Jazz Band and Gordon Webster – is constantly updated and is guaranteed to keep your feet triple stepping and shuffling well into the late nights.
