April’s dance features Lloyd Kaplan & the Aristocats! Lloyd has been a professional musician since his Army bandsman days in the 1950's. Specializing in jazz, he is a frequent performer with his band at events and venues throughout his home state of Rhode Island. It was at one of these engagements that dancers discovered them, and the Aristocats have since played a variety of events for Providence Swings. This will be their first time at Uptown Swing and we’re looking forward to introducing them to the Boston community.
Dang Mai will be this month’s Guest DJ, keeping the dance floor going during band breaks!
A lesson is included to start off the evening. All levels are very welcome! The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
KI is a beautiful venue located just a few blocks from Coolidge Corner in Brookline. With an excellent wood floor and huge space, there is plenty of room for your dancing pleasure. Bring your friends!
T stations are nearby for both the B and C branches of the Green Line and the #66 bus stops right out front. Free street parking in the surrounding vicinity and several town lots. (Meters are free after 6:00pm or 8:00pm.) If you want to come early for dinner, there are an assortment of good choices in walking distance on Harvard St and in Coolidge Corner.
