DJ Night with DJ Alli-Cat (debut) and Mike Hibarger

Category: dances

Join us for a swing dance with our local Boston DJs AND our BRING A FRIEND PROMOTION! Bring a friend to BSC and gain one free admission! Details below.


Set 1 – Mike Hibarger is a regular DJ at Boston Swing Central!  There are about 86 years of recorded swing music and DJ Mike H dips into his diverse collection to play a little something for everyone from every era.  He is delighted when he plays a song and people come up and ask him “what’s that song?” because they want to get the track.

Set 2 – DJ Alli-Cat -Allison Wilhelm, or DJ Alli-Cat, has been a swing lover since 2012, when a video game piqued her interest with music from the early to mid 20th Century. It was her interest in the genre that led her to take up swing dancing. Since her interest in old school music is what led her here, it should be no surprise that her sets feature classic swing artists like Cab Calloway, Chick Webb, Artie Shaw, and Ella Fitzgerald, but she also digs the sounds of today’s artists, like Michael Gamble and the Mint Julep Jazz Band. In her DJing, Allison is committed to authenticity, danceability, and diversity – especially this week, where she has planned an all-female setlist for BSC in honor of Women’s History Month.
