Re: From Russia (via NY) with Love Edition, featuring Svetlana and the Delancey Five

Memo: Attention all swing dancer in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area, be on the lookout for an amazing swing band traveling from New York by the name of Svetlana and the Delancey Five, who will be invading our regularly scheduled Thursday night dance on February 16! Wear your 007 era finest attire and we’ll provide some lovely nibbles and vodka martinis to enhance your dancing and listening experience.

Here is your dossier on the band: “Prepare to swing & be moved!” (JazzLives) as Svetlana & The Delancey Five play their vintage inspired “exuberant, foot-stomping music combining swing and pop-singer / songwriter sensibilities” (WPIX11TV) for the 21st Century dancers and listeners! Fronted by the “outstanding vocalist and songwriter” (Wall Street Journal), the band has headlined many sold-out swing dances and shows in the US and has toured internationally playing for swing dancers (New York Swing Dance Society, Prohibition Productions Salons, Boston Swing Central, San Francisco’s Swing Dancing Club, Tel Aviv Swing Dancing Group, and many more!) and listeners in the premier jazz clubs (Blue Note, BBKings, Iridium, and many others) – as well as packed underground speakeasy parties! Band’s record has premiered among “most added” (JazzWeek/CMJ charts) and has been named in Top Ten Jazz records from 2016 by Classicalite and Bill’s Music Blog!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to swing the *#$@ out to this band!

8:000 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. – free beginner swing lesson with Doug Noël and Hilary Buuck in Studio 4 next door!

8 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. – dance in The Lindy Lab back studio (with the orange door frame) at Triangle Dance Studio and spillover into Studio 4.

Admission is pay-what-you-can with a suggested donation of $10.00.
