    Get ready to dance the night away to the sounds of Basie, Miller, Ellington and Goodman!

    Swing City is a swingin' 9-piece ballroom dance band based in the Boulder area. Swing City plays Big Band Era swing dance favorites, plus Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha-Cha, Salsa, Rhumba, and Two-Step. They started playing together over 10 years ago in Colorado, and they've been swingin' like crazy at Avalon every year since we opened. They are a 'Little Big Band'; larger than a combo, smaller than a big band. Before the large bands of the Big Band Era came into full swing, it was common to see smaller, 9-piece bands that helped give birth to the new swing era of the 1930s. Come join us and enjoy the rhythm, horns and vocals in that classic combination for a great evening of swing dance fun!

    As always, DJ Frank Vernon will play swing, waltzes and other couples dances during the two intermissions.
