    The fabulous Gordon Au & The Grand Street Stompers return to our venue for their forth appearance with us. And this time they are featuring singer Molly Ryan. The Grand Street Stompers are a good old-fashioned New Orleans kind of swinging hot jazz band, led by fresh-from-New-Orleans trumpeter Gordon Au. They delight swing dancers and music lovers with everything from Louis Armstrong hits and ragtime numbers to Disney themes and showtunes.

    “Molly swings the melody – as well as the words – without affectation of any kind. She brings a straight-ahead innocence and total believability to the music that refuses to admit that sixty or seventy years of distractions have ever happened. She sounds worldly wise beyond her years, wonderfully gentle and lyrical.” 
    Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal 

    Indeed, Molly’s silvery voice and lush, elegant vocal style evoke the big band singers of the 1930s and breathe new life into familiar old standards. MollyRyan.com

    Saturday October 18th will be a Double Header featuring opening band Fleur Seule, followed by the west coast’s most original singer and songwriter, Johnny Boyd backed by his Sensational Swing Lover Band. 
    On Johnny:
    He formed Indigo Swing in the early 90’s and hit the dance-band circuit, bringing boogie-woogie and jump-blues music back from the recesses of memory to a nation crazed with jitterbugging and two-toned shoes. 
    Now touring the world with his Sensational Swing Lover Band and touring the world, we're Pleased to have Johnny back again and this time in the Auditorium. 

    On Fleur Seule:
    "Fleur Seule plays Swing Era hits and Jazz standards that will transport you to the 1930s and 1940s: The times of hep cats and swingin' tunes. Led by vocalist Allyson Briggs, this dynamic band of old souls will have you humming and tapping your feet along to classics, and enjoying songs from the vault that you've never heard before." Fleur Seule. We're pleased to feature Fleur Seule for the opening act so get here early so you don't miss them!

    Ron Sunshine and his Hot Rhythm Orchestra will be our musical entertainment for our Fall Season KICK OFF on Saturday Sept 13th, 2014. Ron’s Hot Rhythm Orchestra has been conceived and imagined exclusively for our dance crowd. Ron Sunshine will be presenting a special set list of his most danceable music, selected in part by the dancers at Swing Remix.

    Ron will also be premiering two swingin’ rhythm & blues gems from the 1950’s that you likely have never heard before and that only a singer like Ron Sunshine can do justice to.  One of these is “Keep Your Wondering Eye’s off My Baby” – Gil Bernal.

    More on Ron:
    Imagine how the jump-swing bands of the '30s and '40s would sound filtered through the sensibilities of a generation raised on rock and roll. Take a healthy dose of Rhythm & Blues, New Orleans funk, and downhome harmonica stomps; mix with the classics from the era of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Louis Jordan, Nat King Cole, and Fats Waller; stir in an ever-growing portion of strong original material, and you come up with Ron Sunshine and his Orchestra. Audience members of all ages are getting hip to this timely tip.....putting a new twist on the old standards, serving up some fresh ones, and having, in general, too much fun. So come on down and have a whirl on the dance floor, sing along with the cats, or just relax and enjoy. Read more on Ron Sunshine
