  3. Does anyone know any places around downtown LA/Santa Monica/Venice area that has events like these? I justify don’t have a car so :/

    1. Hi Ivonne,

      I wish! I live in Santa Monica. We just drove to Orange County yesterday to go Swing dancing. Keep an eye on the Lindy Calendar. I’ll post any Swing dance in LA/Santa Monica/Venice that I hear about! Fingers crossed.

      Best,
      Brian

      1. Hinano’s washington Blvd just off the beach, not really a dance club, just a fun place to dance.

      2. I’m just waiting for a little more income and vaxined dancers before I buy a boombox and start planning the first dance party at Clover Park, a BBQ/pot luck DJ’d event one Sunday afternoon, on spacious shaded cement, with lots of pits and tables and parking. No problems with the city of Santa Monica. I’ll do a video of the area and post it. Brian, you might want to assist in some way, since you also live on the Westside.

  4. Hi-de-Hi-de-ho, fellow dancers! Now, that the State is opening back up on June 15th, the first dance will be on Sunday, June 20th at Bixby Park Band shell from 1:30 – 5:30PM. I will be playing great swing music for dancing and it’s 100% free! Feel free to bring a beach chair and snacks or drinks to share. Please, come early, and invite friends to make this a successive! See you on the dance floor!

    Address is,

  5. INTRODUCING:

    You may have seen Natalie with several top groups she sings with – but this is her OWN swingin’ sextet – and she is excited to debut it with Stellar Shows at Campus JAX in Newport Beach!

    Natalie and her bandmates know how to get the room dancing – and romancing!
    Come join the fun with Nat & Her Tiger Five jungle cats… for Grrrs and Purrs!

    The dance floor is open – and our cabaret supper club at Campus JAX is a wonderful opportunity to dine with excellent food and service at your table.

    Limited seating special event: Masks are optional. This is not a socially distanced affair.

    Reservations are required to attend.

    One entree required per person please.

    If you cannot attend, watch it on YouTube or Facebook (with any donation amount) and support the band.

  6. Hello. We wanted to invite Dixieland music lovers and dancers to the Society for the Preservation of Dixieland Jazz monthly concert meetings. We meet the 4th Sunday of each month at Duarte Elks Lodge, 2436 Huntington Drive

There is $15 admission for nonmembers, or $8 for members (however its only $20 to become a member). We are the oldest running Dixieland Jazz society in all of California, and we are celebrating our 60th anniversary this year! We’d like to extend a warm welcome to anyone who would enjoy our efforts to keep Dixieland music alive and well.
