  4. Dear Brain & Juliann ~
    Due to your hyper-efficiency :) Jack’s Cats’ next show is already on your calendar, but we wanted to show off the spiffy poster for this special evening. The Cicada Club will be unobtrusively filming and recording this show for a future promotional video, so come to see and be seen!

  5. On Monday October 21st Hard Shine brings you the “Swing-Time Dance Party” at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica. A $5 donation to the Raffia School of Music for Children gets you into the gig and a free dance lesson with professional instructors Barbara Yeh and David Stockin. (https://www.facebook.com/barbaraanddaviddance/) They specialize in swing dance with smooth Lindy Hops and dips! Hard Shine will bring its mix of retro boogie blues originals and jump covers to the only Monday night Swing Dance Event on the Westside.

  7. PBDA’s last Summer Theme Swing Dance is THIS SATURDAY Night, Aug. 24th–with Time Travel to the 1970s & Pete Jacob’s Hollywood & Vinyl Swing Band! Swing Lesson 7:30-8pm; Band 8-11:30pm. $20 at door includes the lesson, snacks, refreshments, door prizes & extra ‘themed’ fun!

  8. Hillbilly Jazz Sunday Matinee shows are monthly, and the Sept. show is on the 8th at Original Mike’s 1-6 pm.
    It’s another swingin’ Sunday soiree in Santa Ana in the brand new dance hall at Original Mike’s!

    This show features those world-renowned rockabilly artists Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys.

    From Los Angeles, Dave Stuckey & the 4 Hoot Owls plus Carl Sonny Leyland make a VERY RARE appearance in Orange County – and we have them for two sets!

    The Southwest Biscuit Co. is a Western Swing band who really deliver the vintage goods – danceable good-time music with a swinging beat.

    We call it Hillbilly Jazz because it combines a variety of musical styles that are danceable – and thoroughly enjoyable for all ages.

    Three bands, big dance floor, full menu, free parking – it’s a swingin’ Sunday soiree!

  9. Hillbilly Jazz this Sunday Aug. 25 features not one, not two – but 4 quality dance bands!
    Deke Dickerson is a musical spokesperson for his genre of rockabilly, western swing and hillbilly music – and he has a new trio he has formed to play the music he champions.
 It’s a rockabilly group with no drums – and a strong hillbilly influence.
    Deke Dickerson & the Whippersnappers perform originals plus covers by artists like Webb Pierce, Ray Price and Skeets McDonald.
    Adding to this Sunday soiree, enjoy three more great dance bands: Amber Foxx with her rockabilly and torch songs, plus the Moontones, the well-known R&B swing band.
    The Rockin’ Rebels open the matinee show around 1 pm.
    These excellent and entertaining artists round out the combination of styles that equal Hillbilly Jazz!
