Cat's Corner 9/5: Kally Price & the Swingtime Band + September Classes start!
- MUSIC THIS WEDNESDAY, 9/5:
Enjoy music this week from swing, blues & American roots singer Kally Price, whose vocal stylings conjure up the legendary Billie Holiday. Accomplished bandleader and pianist Si Perkoff leads an all-star line-up with Jim Gammon (trumpet), Harvey Robb (reeds), Robbi Bean (drums), and Joe McKinley (bass) playing fine vintage blues and swingin' Dixieland tunes perfect for Balboa, Charleston, Shag...and Lindy of course!
IN THE DJ BOOTH:
Arnold discovered swing music in the late 90s during the swing revival and started dancing shortly after. You can usually find him dancing wherever swing music is playing around the Bay Area. He's DJed at the SF Balboa Festival, Fillmore Jazz Festival and For Dancers Only, as well as the 2012 Munich Lindy Exchange!
