SWING Out AT SD JAZZ FEST 2016

More details for 2017 are coming soon!!

 

The 37th San Diego Jazz Fest will salute our friends in the Swing Dance community with a special "Swing Dance Extravaganza" on  Saturday night, Nov. 26, 2016 at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center.  Warm-up sets start at 3:15pm and there will be non-stop music from 8:15pm-12:30 am.  The featured bands will be Dave Stuckey and his Hot House Gang (above left), Joe Smith and the Spicy Pickles (above right) plus there will be special demos with Joel Plys & his Hang Ten Hoppers.  Both bands are renowned for playing perfect repertoires and perfect tempos for dancers, yet each band has a unique style and approach to Swing music.   Don't miss the "Battle of the Bands" between these two great groups and the Swing Dance Compitition with a $500 prize for the #1 couple.

  

Leading up to the Extravaganza, the Festival will present performances by four more bands that the dancers follow: Sue Palmer and her Motel Swing Orchestra (upper right) the Sweethearts of Swing with High Society (upper left), Big Butter Jazz Band (lower left) and the Memphis Speed Kings (lower right).

Check out some photos from previous Swing Fests including Joel Plys and his Hang Ten Hoppers.
