Swing Street Ball

- (Doors: 7:45pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

The Swing Street Ball returns to Cecil Sharp House with the incredible Palace Avenue Swing!

Playing the best in hot jazz, swing and blues from the 1930-40s, Palace Avenue Swing take their inspiration from the swinging small groups of this golden era such as the Count Basie Octet, Louis Armstrong All-Stars, Eddie Condon and Benny Goodman small combos – groups which were distilled down from their respective Big Bands to a rhythm section and a few key horn players out front with the sole purpose of keeping the feet tapping!

Palace Avenue Swing is a band well known to dancers, and features the wonderful Cherise Adams-Burnett on vocals, channelling the spirit of Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and more.

This band is guaranteed to fill the dance floor and get everyone swinging out in style!

Band's first set: 8.30pm.

Promoted by Swing Street.
