Swing Dance Gig tonight

I have a swing dance gig with the Pacific Cascade Big Band. Started last year as the B jazz band of the Woodinville Community Band, it is quickly becoming a fun place to play with decent musicians. The swing dance last month had over a hundred high school and older dancers. Two of us from the band got to help choose the best dancer during a contest.

    If anything it tends to be Basie heavy. Luv the Basie stuff and wish I’d met him in person. Earlier this year the Microsoft Jazz Band did a mostly Basie set list at Crossroads. Luv it to death.

    Summer we usually wear loud Hawaiian shirts over khaki. For a formal event it’s black over black with ties. Hats are alway optional. :o)
