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.

Information: (619) 297-5277;

Announcing my candidacy (expired event)
Author: Big Mickey :: Posted: Thu Apr 06, 2006 4:39 pm GMT

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. If elected I promise to do nothing....yep that's right NOTHING. With the exception of maybe having a Martini with the Zorlaxions of Alpha Centari 27.5 and a half.

Thank you for your time,

Your future ruler AKA Me

Wanna come -but can’t afford tickets? 3 pairs of dancer/ entertainers are needed to warm up the dance floor and work the crowd (yes that means dance with total strangers...).
