BIG BAND NITE!
Or should we say...
"SWING ORCHESTRA NITE"

We are always thrilled when a Big Band comes to play at Rusty's. There's just nothing like hearing a Swing Orchestra play those class swing charts from the 1940s. Then we are getting it just like the cats back in the day, hearing the room fill with those magnificent, swingin' sounds. You'll find you can't not dance. And that's the best!

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Bill Elliott, pictured above at the piano leading his swing orchestra, explained it to me this way: a swing Big Band consists of 10 players, a swing Orchestra consists of 14 or more players. Either way it's a great sounds, but when you get a Swing Orchestra, like we'll have this Wednesday, my, oh, my there is a difference!

ABOUT THE UPBEAT SWING ORCHESTRA

From their website:

"The Upbeat Swing Orchestra performs swing dance classics from the Big Band Jazz Era. We are a professional 17-piece Big Band with vocalists performing the best-selling hits from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, etc. We use vocal arrangements made famous by Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Bob Eberly, Nat King Cole, among others.

Our book also includes Latin and modern jazz music. Our extensive library is based on hundreds of original arrangements printed in the Swing Era and on transcriptions from original recordings. You won't find a more musically authentic swing band than this."

"MY FAVORITE MOVE"
7:30-8:00PM FREE* CLASS
Taught by a Rusty's Regular

COME ALONG EARLY AND ENJOY
THIS WEEK'S CLASS
CHARLOTTE & THOMAS

Thomas & Charlotte are two of the most exuberant and delightful dancers at Rusty's. With their upbeat energy I nicknamed them "Tigger and Tigger-ette" as they are always bouncing with joy. This will be their second time for "My Favorite Move," and everyone loved their first class!

Come along and welcome them back and warm up!

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.

At Rusty's, each week we strive to present the best of swing dance music for your dancing pleasure. In realizing that dancers have varying taste in their swing music, we present a wide range of music styles from over the decades: vintage swing, Big Bands, small groups, Rockabilly, Rock 'n' Roll, Doo Wop, Neo Swing, West Coast Swing, and just everything in between. Really anything from the 1920s to the present that will get your feet dancing, that's what we bring in!
