  1. Have we discovered a new dance venue? The Mayflower Club in NOHO hosted the Crown City Bombers and DJ Dr. Nate last night. A great combination of upbeat, danceable music. The event was a wonderful success! The dance floor was ideal for swing dancing, there was a bar for libations and tables to sit and socialize and relax between dances. One of the trustees of the non-profit Mayflower club made a plea to everyone asking people to become an annual member ($35/yr) and attend a meeting on Nov. 21 to vote in a slate of sympathetic Board of Directors who want to keep the venue open and not sell it to developers, which some other Board members want to do. If interested in getting involved, visit their website. Their website is in serious need of improvement but here is the link. https://mayflowerclub.com/

  2. Sunday is The Satin Dollz, an incredible show with 1940s vintage vocals, tap dance, swing and more!
    DJ Dr. Nate spins for you dancers out there.
    Brunch starts at 2 pm, show kicks off at 4.
    Enjoy fine food and craft cocktails and great sound.

    About SECRET ISLAND:
    Secret Island is a tiki-speakeasy hidden underground below Shannon’s Corner at Broadway & Pine in the heart of Downtown Long Beach.
    In your quest to find tiki paradise you will experience waterfalls, lightning and thunder. Then suddenly you’ll find yourself in the most luxe and fun tiki lounge and restaurant.
    Secret Island offers fabulous live entertainment which is usually ticketed and reservation only.
    Enjoy a full 5-star menu that include Potstickers, Ahi Poke, Hoisin BBQ, Five Spice Shortribs and over a dozen of our Hawaiian and south seas kitchen creations.
    Try our Lava Lava, a Secret Island original cocktail creation that is accompanied by the sounds of volcanic eruptions – with lava seeping up through the floor when ordered.
    We have chosen Pele, the island goddess of fire and volcanos, to represent our Secret Island with her seductive beauty and passionate displays of temperament and danger, with volcanic eruptions, fire, and thunderous lightning storms.
    Another of our cocktail creations, Pele’s Fire, brings an experience you have to see to believe… sitting on Pele’s Throne, flames erupt around you, and real smoke rises from your cocktail glass.
    Sail away with us to Secret Island, and if asked for the secret password to our tiki speakeasy, the answer is, “It’s a Secret!”

  5. Secret Island Tiki Bar & Music Lounge is no secret anymore!
    Our grand opening weekend had hundreds of tiki aficionados enjoying liquid libations, fine dining and live tiki music.

    Now we open the dance floor to all you swingers in Long Beach and beyond – with Jumpin Joz Friday at 8 pm in the tiki speakeasy – underground! (doors at 6 pm)

    Their style is a wonderful combination of swing, jump, jazz, early R&B, reminiscent of Count Basie, Louie Prima, Benny Goodman, Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Jordan – they even play some Martin Denny.
    When they perform at Secret Island they will be a quartet with a dance floor and great food and drinks.

    The band has a growing following of dancers from young to old. They not only have a great, swingin’ sound but also an incredible show with a classy vintage style.
    Reservations recommended, and door sales may be available.

  6. Wow! I danced to the Moontones at Hangar 24 last night and it was fabulous. This group plays the most danceable swing music song after song. Upbeat, rhythmic and the right length of time, around 3 minutes or so per song. The crowd was into it. A nice mix of older veteran dancers sprinkled in with some younger dancers. It was a very fun night. If you haven’t danced to the Moontones before put them on your list!
