Brian says:

HI Adam,

Thanks for letting me know. Getting schedule info for Clifton’s is a nightmare, so it’s good that you told me.

Best,
Brian

Adam says:

Clifton’s is cancelled for tonight. 🙁 If anyone needs a band, we’re ready to play, no charge!

Brian says:

HI Adam,

Wow, thanks for the notice. Is there a private party? Is it open at all?

Brian

Adam says:

I’m not 100% sure, but I think only the tiki lounge is open.

Jack Malmstrom says:

Very pleased to tell y’all of a very special event. Jack’s Cats will swing Long Beach’s beautiful streamline moderne Sky Room from 7 to 11PM on Friday Dec. 2nd with Special Guest vocalist JANET KLEIN!
Come for dinner, enjoy the bar, stay to dance! Whoopie!

Thank you & sorry to bother you on a holiday — this gig was a last minute addition to our schedule. Happy Thanksgiving!

Olivia Alegria says:

Quick correction: the dance at UCLA on November 28th (7pm-11:30pm) will actually be in Kerckhoff Hall Grand Salon, not in Ackerman Union. Swing Inc. will be playing starting at 9pm!

Brian says:

Thanks Olivia! I made the update.

Olivia Alegria says:

Thank you!

Dave Tonnesen says:

Hi Brian,
The Blue Swing in San Bernardino will be closed for the Holidays – Saturday the 26th of November and Saturdays the 24th and 31st of December. I’ve noted swingdance.la for our meetup and website viewers to get their holiday dance fix. Thanks as always Brian for helping us keep up to date with all things swing in LA.

again, late notice: Barbara Morrison is doing another fundraiser for Barry’ Kitchen this Saturday in Leimert Park at the future location of Barbara’s California Jazz & Blues Museum. She’ll be performing with the Swing Thing Band.

There will be 2 45 mnute sets from 4-6pm with plenty of room for dancing, though it’ll be on concrete like at the Edison. We’ll also be raffling off some Barry’s Kitchen/Jazz & Blues t-shirts.

More details can be found on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1651114458520131/
