First Saturday of each month.
Dance with us on the first Saturday night of each month to great music, with good people, in a fun, friendly environment.
Blues is all at once a musical style, a form of dance, and a feeling. It resounds with expressions of heart-ache, joy, seduction, spirituality, humor, and runs of bad luck. There is nothing quite like shaking off your worries and your cares when dancing to the Blues.
Blues evolved in parallel with Swing with it's roots in African American culture and European partner dancing. The dance has its own variations depending on the musical style and tempo. Jookin', Ballroomin', Struttin' and others are all part of Blues dancing. It can be found all over the country...if you know where to look.
We can be found in the side-rooms to the left of the main ballroom when you first walk in. Just let the front desk know you are here for Blues on the B-Side and they will point you in the right direction.
Expect to hear all kinds of Blues music styles - Chicago, Delta, Juke Joint, Memphis, Jump Blues, Blues Rock, and more - from classic standards to some of the best Blues musicians of today.
