"Battle Of The Big Bands!"


If you are a fan of Swing Era Music like I am then I know you eyes are about bug out with this!  Fresh off the radio waves is the press release for the 2013 Battle of the Big Bands:

Come hear and see the Battle of the Big Bands 2013 – George Gee vs. Dean Mora (West Coast Edition) in Culver City! 

George Gee & Orchestra

Dean Mora & Orchestra
Four hours of non-stop LIVE MUSIC (8pm-12am) with performances planned for band change overs with:
Atomic Ballroom Lindy Colliders
Hollywood Hotshots
California Jubiliee
San Diego's Hang Ten Hoppers

Message from Dean Mora & George Gee: The Gauntlet has been thrown! LA's Dean Mora's Modern Rhythmists vs. NYC's George Gee Swing Orchestra - West Coast vs. East Coast!
Two of the nation's premiere 12-pc. swing dance orchestras set up side-by-side for an old school 'Battle of The Big Bands.’ A must attend, epic, don't-miss event of the year, produced solely by these two old skool swing veterans (Dean & George). If you haven't been dancing much lately - this is your reason to come on back out and support! If you still swing hard now, then you have EXTRA reasons to attend! This swing dance spectacular will be featuring special performances, tributes (to West Coast Favorite Jean Veloz and legendary East Coast Savoy Dancer Frankie Manning – this is an official sanctioned Frankie99 celebration!) And at one of the largest dance floors in Southern California – the former location of The Satin Ballroom. All under the auspices of MC Extraordinaire Maxwell DeMille.

Doors open at 6:45pm at the former home of the “Satin Ballroom,” the Veterans Memorial Complex. Show from 8pm-12am!

There will be a lesson before the dance from 7:00-7:55pm.
Beginners taught by Shesha and Nikki
Intermediate taught by Ben and Sheri
Advanced taught by Steve and Chancy

$35 before June 23rd, $40 at the door
