GIO AND GLENN'S BIRTHDAYS AND 1950'S NITE
Last week we had a terrific evening of birthdays, music, and dancing. Gio and Glenn got to have their very own birthday dances -- which you can see by the movies below they thoroughly enjoyed! Our 1950's dress-up was agreat success. Thanks to everyone who doned the duds! You all looked fantastic. We're only sorry that we didn't take a movie of all the girls with twirly skirts twirling their skirts! Dang! Can't remember to do everything!
If any of you would like to have a private swing dance lesson, give Rusty a call at 310.606.5606.
MAXWELL'S AT THE
ARGYLE: We'd like to say a special congratulations to our pal, Mr. Maxwell
DeMille, the classiest vintage-style club host we know. And what are
these special accolates for? He's celebrating his one-year anniversary
of "Maxwell's at the Argyle." Well done, kid! This snazzy nite spot
sits high atop the Sunset Strip in the historic Art Deco Hotel Argyle. For
one year, Maxwell has been bringing the finest in art deco swing entertainment
to our Los Angeles dance scene. And this coming Monday he plans on
topping it all off by hosting a smashing party, invtiing all the previous
performers to entertain. This includes our very own Rusty, who will be tap
dancing to Mora's Modern Swingtet. Come along, cheer her on, give Maxwell
a rousing "hoorah," and generally enjoy yourself! Congrats, again, Maxwell!
In the vernacular, "You're swell!
See you on the dance
Wondering what the heck a "gate" is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast).
