Little Charlie and The Nightcats (expired event)
Author: yabork :: Posted: Sat Apr 15, 2006 12:17 pm GMT
*Little Charlie and The Nightcats:
4/15, Humphrey's Lounge - 2241 Shelter Island Dr.

"Powerful...outrageous...wonderful....Baty's immediately recognizable guitar style and Estrin's uniquely twisted and humorous lyrical vision [make] Little Charlie and the Nightcats one of the most successful proponents of the blues/swing /rock/jazz synthesis so popular today." --Living Blues
"Rollicking, super-cool, jazzy and hip...satirical, sharp lyrics and killer guitar and harp solos. It just doesn't get any better then this." --Blues Revue
Sacramento-based blues, swing and jump masters Little Charlie & The Nightcats have much in common with their feline counterparts. They take great (musical) leaps and always land on their feet, they're constantly on the prowl (gigging all over the world), and, with all of the various styles of music they play, they seem to have many lives.

Guest DJ Jason Kennedy at the Firehouse (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Apr 13, 2006 2:10 am GMT
Since DJ Brian can no longer stay late on Thurs. nights, we'll be having a new DJ format for our Firehouse Thursdays. Every week, we'll be rotating guest DJs for the 11p-12a shift. Last week, Carl did an awesome job as our late night DJ, and this week, our very own Jason Kennedy is going to give it a try. When I talked with Jason, I told him that I wanted him to play songs that he enjoys dancing to, but don't get played all that much. Let's see what he comes up with.

Firehouse Schedule for Thurs. Apr. 13th

7-8p: Charleston Rueda Class
8-9p: Beg. Lindy Class
9-10p: DJ Roheven
10-11p: DJ Brian Abe
11p-12a: DJ Jason Kennedy

Heliotrope Ragtime Orchestra (expired event)
Author: hihat :: Posted: Wed Apr 12, 2006 1:34 pm GMT
On Sunday, Apr. 16, the AFCDJS concert-dance featuring the HELIOTROPE RAGTIME ORCHESTRA has been moved to the MISSISSIPPI ROOM of the LAFAYETTE HOTEL and SUITES - 2223 El Cajon Blvd., between Louisiana and Mississippi Streets.

We apologize for the last-minute move from the Elks, but it was unavaoidable. However, the Mississippi Room has a large dance floor and very good acoustics.

The "Easter Parade" and parasol contest will take place as planned during the orchestra's second set.

Vintage Dancers are encouraged to attend...and to DANCE!

Admission: $7.00 for AFCDJS members; $10.00 for non-members. Under 22: $5.00.

In keeping with the recent political fund raiser announcements here on SwingoDrama, I am now announcing my candidacy for SUPREME RULER OF THE KNOWN UNIVERSE! Tonight I will have my first fund raising benefit at Tio Leo's. I urge all of you to come and contribute liberally to my campaign efforts.
