  5. Hey everybody! I’m excited for the Los Angeles premiere of my doc “Swing Dance Party” at the Culver City Film Festival on 12/5 Wednesday at 7:30pm at the Cinemark 18 & XD two weeks from today!

    This film chronicles the musical journey of Jumpin’ Joz (Rick Joswick) the world’s preeminent swing drummer and a driving force on the Southern California swing scene for over three decades. Joz was at the forefront of the “swing dance revival” here in Los Angeles, starting his swing band in 1983 after coming to LA from Illinois where he was in a college rock & roll band called The One Eyed Jacks which included such talents as hit songwriter Tom Kelly, music producer/superviser Budd Carr, and composer/producer Barry Fasman, and was the first band ever booked by Irving Azoff.

    Thanks to the fine musicianship of Jumpin’ Joz, Michael Carr, Barry Pohlmann, Dan “Triple” Lutz, Jerry Moore, Robert Kyle and Michael Uhler, “Swing Dance Party” won Best Soundtrack at the AOF Megafest in Las Vegas last August. I can’t wait for this LA premiere!

    This film was shot on location at Rusty’s Rhythm Club, Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association, Don Roberto’s Swing Den (hey Rob that’s you!) and in the swingin’ city of Los Angeles. Did you know that West Coast Swing is the official state dance of California? You’ll see some of it in this film! #swingmusic fans and #swingdancers come to the theater and see a great story, and let’s all get some pics together on the red carpet before the screening. Hope to see you all there! #filmfestival

  9. There is no swing dancing at the Culver Hotel tonight, Thanksgiving. We turned up at 6:15pm and was told there’s some kind of quiet jazz music at 8pm. Not sure if that’s danceable.

    1. Ok we found a speakeasy Seventy7 lounge across the street from Culver Hotel down the alley and the owner is playing cool swing music for us dance to. Happy thanksgiving!

      1. Thanks for letting me know, and glad you found an alternative! It was supposed to be outside adjacent to the hotel. Did you look there?

        Brian
