Swing Dancing on Channel 933!
Author: mel :: Posted: Wed Jan 11, 2006 2:43 pm GMT
Hey all! AJ's Playhouse on Channel 933 is doing a spoof of Dancing with the Stars. They call it "Dancing with the Playhouse". AJ, Jesse, Hula and Nina are all competing against each being voted off each week...until the winner is revealed. The first week they chose SWING!!

Meeshi and I taught them a 1 minute routine, and they only had one hour to learn it. Then, they took turns recording it secretly so they couldn't see each other's performances. All four videos will be online at between 8:00am - 9:00am on Thursday morning so viewers can vote for their favorite.

Please listen to 93.3 an check out the website to vote for your favorite tomorrow morning at 8am! This is a great opportunity for Swing to get into the mainstream again. They are also going to advertise the "Living Legends of Swing" workshop weekend!


ps...Swingorama's own Liz O'Grady will be teaching them Ballroom next week, so stay posted for more!

Hey everyone!

My B-day was on the 4th, and I'm new to my place...

So, let's have a party to warm it up & also celebrate my birthday!! I'm thinking byob, and your fav. cd's & we'll have a blast!! I don't have many bowls, so bringing munchies would be great, but best have something to hold them in. I'll provide some drinks & munchies too!

date: Saturday, January 21st, 8 or 9-ish... I've got a big backyard too, so I'll probably have a few blankets out or you can bring one to chill out there... or you can stay inside... with my wood floors...

Location: 1822 Adams Ave. San Diego 92116. Across the street from Lancers bar, and close to Park blvd.- 3 apts. from the corner. I'm on the bottom floor.

Here is a rockabilly lover's event - anyone going or has anyone gone that wants to share?
The Firehouse is back in La Jolla (finally)!
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Wed Jan 04, 2006 4:12 am GMT
Happy 2006 to all!

(picture taken at a Firehouse swing class in July)

After a month of venue hopping, the Firehouse happily returns to La Jolla for good (well, at least, until the next SD Junior Theatre play in March). And to celebrate the New Year and being back in La Jolla, we are offering a special new deal for all those interested in attending the Firehouse swing classes. Starting this Thurs. Jan. 5th, ALL Firehouse swing students will gain FREE admission to the Firehouse dance! That's right, you will now get to attend a great 1-hour Lindy lesson PLUS gain FREE entrance to our popular Firehouse dance -- ALL FOR ONLY $12. But, wait, it gets better...receive 6-weeks of super swing instruction plus the FREE dances for only $60 ($50 for students under 21).

Int. dancers -- Looking to review your basics or pick up some cool new moves. Attend both classes...

Well - I posted in the recurring section, but i realised nothing I've ever done was regular or recurring! So I will re-submit here...

Tio's has shown an interest in having us play a weekend show. It has been a long while since we played Tio's. If you are interested in seeing the band...let me know and I will attempt to secure a date.

I am also friends with Steve and Claire of Claire de Lunes. I would love to do a show in that lower joint. Does anyone know what the accoustics are like?
