As part of their swing dance workshop weekend, Capital City Swingout presents an evening swing dance with live music in the Spanish Ballroom. Tonight's band will be Naomi & Her Handsome Devils

 

Naomi & Her Handsome Devils are a 7 piece band striving for the sound of that swing era sweet spot. Naomi founded the Devils after working with some of the best bands on the swing dance/lindy hop scene, and as a top international lindy hopper herself she knew just what she wanted to hear on the dance floor and just who she wanted to play it. The Devils have decades of experience playing hot jazz as some of the top young talent in the Chicago and New York traditional jazz scenes, and Naomi hand picked her favorite musicians to come together and make music. Put it all together and you have a modern band with a vintage sound, swinging dance floors around the world.

Enjoy a beginner swing dance lesson at 8:00 pm (included in the admission), followed by dancing until 2:00 am. No partner or prior experience needed.

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 11:30 pm. No partner or prior experience needed.

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.
