The DC Lindy Exchange presents a DCLXtra swing dance with Chelsea Reed and the Fairweather Six in the historic Spanish Ballroom. 

In October 2012, vocalist Chelsea Reed brought a few of her friends together to play some tunes in a South Philly dining room. Her plan was to form a band that played for swing dancers, so she could finally have the chance to sing her favorite songs for an audience that loved early jazz as much as she did. Since that fateful day, she’s been living that dream and couldn’t be happier about it. 


Now, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Six are at home at swing dances, jazz clubs and concert halls alike. They have played renowned Philadelphia venues and travel the country year round to perform at both Lindy and Blues exchanges and workshops. They’ve had the honor of sharing the stage with trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Gordon Webster, and bassist Michael Gamble. They love exploring the roots of jazz and finding creative ways to interpret forgotten songs. Drawing upon the intensity of powerhouse vocalists, the ingenuity of 20th century composers, and the soul of the dance floor, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Six honor the heritage of jazz with fresh arrangements and original songs. They are silly, passionate people who love playing this music.

 

Beginner Lesson: 8 - 9 pm in the Ballroom (Free with admission!)

Intermediate Lesson: 8 - 9pm in the Back Room ($5 additional)
Dance: 9 pm - midnight

And stick around for the late-night Blues dance with more live music from Chelsea Reed and the Fairweather Six!

So take a tip from The Washington Post’s Mike Joyce, “The Cunningham Band is bound to please.”

We know how it is, babies. Ever since you joined your family, your parents have been talking about how they never get a chance to go out swing dancing anymore, so tell them about this great Saturday DJ dance that's parent and children-friendly. They won't have to worry about getting a babysitter, because the whole family can attend together. They won't have to worry about bothering other dancers, because you're all in the same playpen! The music will be soft and the lights will be up, so Mommies and Daddies can get their swing on in a family-friendly setting.

 

Children must be supervised by a guardian at all times. Adults do not have to be accompanied by a baby (but they must like babies!). 

Parents/guardians are entirely responsible for their children and child care is NOT provided by GEPPAC or American Swing.
