The leading lady of a new generation of female jazz vocalists gets the season swinging. Backed by Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, the chanteuse will bring her velvety, classic style to her first-ever swing dance. In celebration of Lindy Hop pioneer Frankie Manning’s 100th birthday, the night features a DJ set by Frankie’s son and master dancer Chazz Young and Manning’s longtime dance partner Norma Miller.

As this is a dance event, there is no seating.
