A Preview Of This Thursday’s Valentine’s Swing Dance With Lucky 5
Dewey Hall on Main Street in Sheffield will once again host another Swing Dance, only this time around the event has been moved to Thursday, February 14th (aka Valentine's Day) as no lonely hearts will be left out--Come on by solo with friends or you can bring a date to this fun filled get together.
Doors will open at 7:30 pm, a dance lesson with Jason Fenton is scheduled for 8 pm and one hour later, you can dance to the sounds of Lucky 5, a hard swinging jazz band that blends swing and gypsy jazz as they crate a unique blend of music that appeals to their loyal audiences. The quintet always puts a new spin on jazz standards and their original compositions as they pay homage to the music that was a daily staple for all to enjoy during the Roaring 20's, 1930's and 1940's.
Guitarist Kip Beacco, bassist Matt Downing, drummer Will Carroll, fiddle player Jonathan Talbott and trombonist Carlyn Dufraine will keep the music going throughout the evening as you will be able to show off your dancing skills in high fashion as you can wear red, black or white to brighten your appearance on the dance floor.
