Harry Katz says:

Hi all! I hope this finds you well!

I’ve got a 7 – 10 piece rock and roll/Blues/Jazz band that has a residency at Harvard and Stone in Hollywood, Tuesday nights for the month of October.

October 2nd is our opening night and a special occasion. To make it really special, I want to invite swing dancers of all levels to participate in a fun dance competition for a small cash prize ($20-$50 dollars) Judged by the band and the audience, all in good fun! Although there is not a big dance floor. It is a small space, and if it gets too crowded, we will do our best to keep the dance floor clear. The competition would mostly be during one song, but the whole set is danceable and we invite everyone to enjoy the entire evening.

The evenings will begin around 8, with a special menu and Magician in the back bar, live music on stage at 9:00 PM, 10:00 PM,and 11:00 PM with the competition taking place during the 10:00 PM Set (Going as late as 11:15 PM)

Brian says:

Hi Harry,

Thanks for posting! I added your residency to the Lindy Calendar.

Brian
