L.A.'S ALL-FEMALE SWING BAND
7:30-8:00 AT OUR WEDNESDAY DANCES

Lo, and behold, the call finally came in from Lindsay McMurray and The Lady Lucks. It took me a second to say YES!, and here they are this Wednesday.
The history of all-girls bands (as they were called in the 1930s-1940s) is a fascinating one.

And, here's a fascinating article about the history of these bands and more:
"All Female Bands of the Early 20th Century
The Lady Lucks is an ALL FEMALE swing band based in Los Angeles who focuses on playing swing music from the 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's.
Lindsay McMurray, The Band Leader, has been working in Los Angeles since 2003. Her passion for the trombone started at age 10 in a suburb of Seattle, WA. She currently plays in the Disneyland Band, in salsa bands and in swing bands.
Her passion for swing music and her fellow female musicians has inspired her to start this group. She saw around her such amazingly talented women musicians and wanted to collect them together to make fun and beautiful music.
