Beginning Swing Dance lesson by Professor Watson and Chelsea Beach at 8:15pm included with entry
3 sets of live music by The Barrelhouse Wailers Jazz Band – Hailing from Ventura, CA The Barrelhouse Wailers serve up their own take on Prohibition Era hot jazz and blues music of the 1920’s and 1930’s. They perform on only acoustic instruments to retain the authentic sound of that period. The Wailers bring their passion and energy to the style, making it as fresh today as it was when it was the newest, hottest dance music 100 years ago! They have been influenced by a cocktail of artists, past and present, like Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Tuba Skinny, Sydney Bichet, Billie Holiday as well as Traditional New Orleans Jazz, Classic Blues, Country Blues and Big Band sounds.
Enjoy gourmet bites from House Dat Grill on the patio all night long!
Crown Theatre 140 S Rosemead Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91107
