DOUBLE HEADER WEEK
IT'S A FIRST!

When the legendary swing guitarist, John Reynolds called me last month to offer up his services along with New Orleans' singing star, Banu Gibson, I didn't hesitate for a second to book him... even though I already had Friday favorite Stompy on the same week.

WHY?
BECAUSE IT'S JOHN REYNOLDS &
NEW ORLEANS' STAR BANU GIBSON!!

Ever since I met John and Banu back in the 1980s, I have been a super-fan. John's playing is legendary here in the L.A. swing dance scene, and Banu is a superstar in New Orleans and around the world on the Trad Jazz scene. For those of you who went to Sweet and Hot here in the past years, you already know her. The rest of you are in for the BIGGEST treat! Trust me!!!

AND NOW... ALL THE INFO...


WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4TH
JOHN REYNOLDS & BANU GIBSON

John Reynolds will be joined by Katie Cavera, Nate Ketner, Tom Liston and very special guest female vocalist, Banu Gibson. Banu, in town for a brief visit from New Orleans is joining this already swinging band for a night of 1920's and 1930's dance music. If you are familiar with Banu Gibson, you know what a special treat it is to have her in our neck of the woods. Unfamiliar? Then this is an evening of music and fun that you do not want to miss.

ABOUT BANU GIBSON

Today, Banu (bah'new) Gibson stands virtually at the top of her field. A superior and swinging jazz singer, Banu is one of the few vocalists of her generation to maintain exclusive loyalty to songs of the 1920s, '30s, and '40s. Rather than mimic singers of the past, she mixes fresh renditions of Tin Pan Alley standards and jazz classics by Gershwin, Ellington, Berlin, Carmichael, Waller, Porter, et al. A powerful force on stage as well as on her CDs on the Swing Out label, her enthusiasm and showmanship are highlighted by her wide range and versatility.

DANIELLE TEACHING LATIN!

BEGINNER SWING DANCE CLASS 8:00-8:30PM

PLUS, THE ICECREAM MAN!

Little David Rose's thumpin' stand-up bass, the double-shuffle drumming of Lee Beary, and the bounce piano of William Beatty provide the rhythmic foundation of the band's jump style. Riffing on top is the trumpet sound of Robert Dehlinger and Erv Ervin on the saxophone. These two fellas create the fireworks of vintage rhythm and blues. The charming Hank Maninger on vocals and lead guitar have become a trademark of Stompy Jones.

FIRST FRIDAY GUEST INSTRUCTOR
DANIELLE O'NIELL - LATIN DANCES $5 ~ 7:30-8:30pm

We thought it would fun to change it up this month, and give you the opportunity to learn those basic latin dances so you don't have to leave the floor when a Latin song is played.

We're bringing you, direct from The Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Pasadena, Danielle O'Niell. Many of you know this studio as the home of TSS and other dance events.

And now we bring Pasadena to you!

ABOUT DANIELLE O'NIELL

Danielle O'Neill found her first love in 1992 with swing dancing. She quickly found herself doing shows for thousands and dancing on tours with bands. This led her to explore other styles. She began ballroom and latin dancing in 1995 and then started competing professionally in 1996. You can find her both in front of the camera and/or behind the scenes in many music videos, commercials, movies and stage productions. She opened her own ballroom dance studio in 2002 in Pasadena where she coaches, choreographs, organizes competitions, and continues to share her love for dance with everyone.


AND, OF COURSE,
OUR FRIDAY PERENNIAL FAVORITE..
THE ICE CREAM MAN

C.K. FARNSWORTH AND HIS MOBILE SODA will be on hand for your ice cream needs serving his good old fashioned ice cream treats in the tradition of the old Soda Fountains from the 1920s and 1930s
