October 5: Rainy City Riff Raff

We are so excited to have Rainy City Riff Raff, a swingin’ eight piece variety band, back to play for our dancing pleasure. This group has something special… three hot, happening HORNS! Fire ’em up over a solid four-piece rhythm section, add great vocals, then enjoy. The result is an upbeat mix of classic hits played with style – and an audience that’s all smiles. Expect to enjoy Swing, Blues, Latin and a Waltz or two. What a combination! A big band sound in the beautiful Leif Erikson Hall.

Pre-dance lesson: 7pm to 8pm. Mark the Rhythm with your Movement: Lilli Ann Carey and Claire Carey will help you play with both moves and styling to capture the rhythm of the music. What might you hear in a swing tune and how can you add it into your dance? And, if you’re a follow, how might you contribute more fully into the conversation?

Dance:  8pm to 11pm .

Cost: $15 general admission payable by cash or check at the door, $10 students under 23 with ID.

Location: Leif Erikson Hall,  2245 NW 57th St. Seattle.

Parking:  Free parking will be available at this dance in the Banner Bank lot due to a cooperative relationship with Banner Bank, immediately east and next door to the Leif Erikson Hall. Free parking is also available at the Ballard Health Club lot immediately south of the hall and east of Classic Consignment, through the generosity of an anonymous donor.

Details:  Please bring a sweet or savory snack to share. Check that your shoes are clean and do not mark the floor.  For the comfort and well-being of all our dancers, especially those with sensitivities, allergies or asthma, please do not wear perfume or fragranced personal products. Thank you!
