Just to clarify, we're in the CRYSTAL BALLROOM for the Battle of the Bands. That's the nice, smooth wood floor. We are NOT in the Drill Room, the
not-as-nice floor from November.
Just over one week to go - reserve your table or individual tickets.
All ages, all skill levels welcome. Typically two-thirds in attendance at these dances are beginners or don't dance at all! "You can do it!"
The BATTLE of the Bands is BACK!
All Night Entertainment presents the Big Band, Big Floor, Big Crowd XVII, Saturday, May 12, 2007 at the Masonic Temple Crystal Ballroom in Detroit .
Dancers and music lovers will bask in swinging sounds as two great bands compete: Paul King and the Rhythm Society Orchestra (PK&RSO) versus Carl
Cafanga & the Big Band Machine (CC&BBM), two of the best dance bands in the Midwest .
PK&RSO, a 15-piece band, specializes in true vintage swing. Their sound is heavily influenced by Count Basie and Harry James. CC&BBM is 13 pieces
worth of a rollicking, nostalgic, danceable good time.
General admission begins at 7 p.m. with a dance lesson from 7 to 8 p.m. The bands trade sets until 11:30 p.m. when the audience will vote for their
favorite. Then the bands continue until 12:45 a.m. There is a cash bar available throughout the evening.
Tickets are $22 per person in advance or at the door. Add $5 for the lesson. To reserve a table of eight or individual tickets, mail a check to All Night
DJs, 1309 Player Dr. , Troy , MI 48085 . Include your guests' names and an e-mail address to confirm receipt.
The BIG3s pull dancers and non-dancers from all ages together for incredible evenings of music and dance. If you don't know how to dance, come join the
many that soak in the sights and sounds of an unforgettable evening.
