Go wild for 2012 with half off the Year's End Jitterbug Jump Dance Party
Sorry you missed this offer...
- On Saturday, December 29, join Jumpin Entertainment for their Year's End Jitterbug Jump Dance Party, featuring Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s—the torchbearers of a great American musical heritage.
- Taking their inspiration from the great jump and boogie outfits and swingin' big bands of the '40s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock & roll. Mitch takes his cue from his jumpin' and jivin' predecessors, such as Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Joe and Jimmy Liggins, and Louis Prima. Mitch's pile-drivin' piano licks and energetic stage persona combine with the Rocket 88s' swingin' horns, rockin' guitar and jungle drums to send a crowd into dancing delight.
- Attend a dance competition where the Swing Remix 2012 Dance Champions will be crowned. You'll be eligible to win up to $700 in prizes, including a Midsummer Night's Swing season pass, a special concert at the Allen Room at Jazz @ Lincoln Center plus dinners at Big Daddy Diner and Swing 46!
