What to expect......

 A fun night of dancing to the very best music from the Swing Era. Two hours of live music from the 8 piece Ashby "little" Big Band (3 saxes, 2 Trumpets, Piano, Bass and Drums). The evening is Compered by Vocalist Kal Vaikla. On occasions we also have  a guest vocalists.

Period dress is encouraged but not essential. 

Music......

If you can think of the "Top 10 Hits"  from the war years you won't be far off guessing the core of our programme for the night. In the Mood,  Mack the Knife, Woodchoppers Ball etc. A small selection of popular R&R such as Rock Around the Clock and Hippy Hippy Shakes. The tunes vary but they are all instantly recognisable and we'll be sure to include some Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin from the 50s and 60s.

Dances......

We try to get an even balance of Ballroom, Stroll and Swing dance styles to include everyone;  Dances such as Quickstep, Foxtrot, Waltz, St Bernard's Waltz, Veleta, Barn Dance, Stroll, Shim Sham, Lindyhop, Jive, Tango and Charleston.
