Saturday, July 18: The Max Band at the Swedish Club

Because so many dancers raved about the variety of great music The Max Band played for us on June 6, we’re bringing them back just six weeks later for our dance on July 18. Bandleader Howard Mack and his musical compatriots play just about every genre of dance music: Swing, Blues, Rock ’n Roll, Waltz, R & B, Latin and Funk. We think it’s the perfect band for a middle-of-the-summer dance party. You also get a pre-dance workshop by one of our favorite instructors, Michelle Badion. Everyone loved The Max Band the last time they played. We listened. And so we’re bringing the band back for you. Tell your friends not to miss this one. At the Swedish Club on Dexter Avenue North.

Saturday, August 1: Brian Lee and the Orbiters at the Swedish Club.

A stellar ride through the blues universe! Brian Lee & the Orbiters are among the premier bands on the Northwest U.S. blues circuit and popular with the NW Dance dancers. Brian delivers dynamic and engaging performances with melodic vocals, exceptional song writing, and superb harmonica, slide guitar, and guitar. Expect different tempos of swing, some sultry blues and even some latin for your dancing pleasure. Pre-dance workshop at 7:30. It’s warm so dress light and casual.
