Saturday, February 24, 8:00 pm - midnight

Presenter: Tom Cunningham Orchestra

Recommended Ages: All ages welcome

Location: Spanish Ballroom

Admission: $20 general / $15 students




Hear for yourself why Frankie Manning, one of the original Whitey’s Lindy Hoppers and an icon to the Swing World, called the Tom Cunningham Orchestra “the Swingin’est Band in all the Land!” The 16-piece orchestra’s appearances at Glen Echo Park are a Washington institution going back to 1983 and celebrated on TV, radio, newspapers and in books. So take a tip from The Washington Post’s Mike Joyce, “The Cunningham Band is bound to please.”


Enjoy a beginning swing lesson with Tom & Debra of Gottaswing at 8 pm, followed by dancing from 9 to midnight. No partner or prior experience needed.
