This Saturday Jill Cohen, a Boulder stalwart, is putting on a free dance at Under the Sun. From the Facebook page:
The Summit Hot Seven and Under the Sun Eatery and Taphouse are over the moon to bring you Late Night Holiday Swing Under the Sun! On the menu: extraordinary live music, generous drink specials, swing dancing, a beautiful venue, and fun times with all of your friends. Not on the menu: a cover charge. That's the gist! For details, keep reading...
MUSIC: The Summit Hot Seven plays Traditional Jazz, New Orleans Jazz, Blues, Charleston, and everything Swing. Their magic formula, which blends rock-solid musicianship, high energy exuberance, and inventive playing of old sounds, has been keeping the swung note alive and thriving in Colorado for years. Their first gig for us dancers was such a blast, they are thrilled to be playing us another. Said band leader Dr. Chaz Bowles, "We'll knock your socks off and have a ball watching you guys cut loose!" But you don't have to be a swing dancer to enjoy this band! Just come on out, have a listen, tap your toe, and let The Summit Hot Seven delight you beyond expectation.
DRINKS AND FOOD: Under the Sun Eatery and Taphouse is generously opening its doors to the Boulder and Denver Swing Dance Community, not only by hosting this night of music and dancing without a cover charge, but by offering incredible drink specials as well. Mountain Sun Ales will be $3.50 pint/$10.50 pitcher, and margaritas, sangria, and house red and white wine will be $5. In this wonderful spirit of venues supporting dancers and dancers supporting venues, please plan to purchase a drink or two. There is a huge selection of award-winning Mountain Sun Ales, guest beers, and wine on tap. And delicious $4 pizzas will be served as long into the night as we order them.
DANCING AND PERFORMANCE: Under the Sun's wood floor is gorgeous! Come and dance your hearts out, but please choose shoes that don't scuff. Performances at the band break? Definitely. :)
MORE: There is an amazing workshop happening this very weekend! All the details are here: Steve & Chanzie Denver Workshops - lindy hop & collegiate shag. Learn some moves during the day, then bust 'em out on Saturday night.
Please feel free to invite your friends! We're excited to see you all swingin' out under the sun!
