HELP SEND OUT TEAM TO CAMP HOLLYWOOD
RUSTY'S RHYTHM RASCALS

We're sending a Lindy by the Sea team to The National Jitterbug Championship (NJC) at Camp Hollywood! It's our first ever. They'll be performing in Team Division, and they have been rehearsing like crazy.

BAKE SALE

At our dance, this Wednesday, they are baking all sorts of goodies for you to enjoy. Make whatever donation you like, and help them get the 2.5 miles from Rusty's to the Airport Marriott, and help us show the Lindy Hop world how fun we are!


ABOUT THE BAND

SEINFELD WRITER/PERFORMER
BACK AT RUSTY'S
ANDY COWAN & THE NINA BECK TRIO

When Andy Cowan & The Nina Beck Trio first played at Rusty's, we all had a dancing great fun. The next morning, this email was waiting for me, and I have to say, it was one of the BEST emails I ever received from a bandleader:

"Dear Rusty, Thank you so much. We really loved your spirit and the whole effect on this worthy haven. A place where hand held devices are other people's hands -- what a concept! We look forward to returning to your alternate universe." Best, Andy

For swinging interpretations of the classic songbook, scatting, tasty originals, comedic parodies written by featured vocalist and Seinfeld veteran Andy Cowan, and even a blues rendition of an Oscar-winning Dylan tune, audiences seek out this group and keep coming back for more! Andy Cowan & The Nina Beck Trio is an award-winning vocalist and jazz band (classic songbook/swing/Latin/blues) among the favorites of Los Angeles club owners and special event planners throughout the 2000s. Nailing the sound and intelligence of Sinatra and Tony Bennett like no other group out there, they're more than a Frank Sinatra tribute band, and succeed by making the music their own.

The Nina Beck Trio features vocalist, ANDY COWAN, an award-winning writer/performer (Seinfeld, 3rd Rock From the Sun, Cheers) whose natural command of the classic songbook AND lyrics separates him from the other pretenders to the throne. This Who's Who in America biographee has graced jazz clubs and special events throughout Los Angeles (and radio and TV) for over two decades, his youthful appearance notwithstanding, beginning with his breakthrough performance of "Sinatra" singing pop and rock songs of the '80s accompanied by Jack Sheldon, Plas Johnson & the rest of the stellar Mort Lindsey Orchestra on The Merv Griffin Show.

A seasoned player/songwriter and veteran of major venues throughout Los Angeles, pianist NINA BECK has accompanied such greats as jazz and blues legendary vocalist Ernie Andrews, Barbara Morrison, and prominent artists Gene Diamond, Henry Franklin, Doug MacDonald, Ralph Penland, Cathy Segal-Garcia, and Jimmy Spencer.

MY FAVORITE MOVE
7:30-8:00PM - FREE*

TBA

Come to Rusty's early and learn their "My Favorite Move."

WHAT IS "MY FAVORITE MOVE"?

This is a 1/2 hour class taught by one of our Rusty's & Lindy by the Sea regulars. These dancers are not professional instructors (as with our Friday guest instructors), and the class will have an informal air, with the dancers sharing one of their favorite dance moves.

MY FAVORITE MOVE gives you a chance to come to the dance a little early, warm up by learning a new move, and visit with your friends before the night's dancing begins.

If you would like to share one of your favorite moves, contact me via EMAIL, and I'll put you in the calendar.

Really anything from the 1920s to the present that will get your feet dancing, that's what we bring in!
