Who is Andy Baylor?
Andy is a long-time dancer's favourite, previously based in Melbourne, but now gracing the harbour city with his particular brand of stringed delight. Andy plays with many bands, from western swing to cajun zydeco, and back to gypsy jazz and hot jazz. Most notably (for dancers at least), Andy plays in Ultrafox and the Irwell Street String Band, fronted by our favourite, Hetty Kate
If you've been coming along to classes at the PBC for a while now, this is the perfect opportunity to test out social dancing with friends. If you've no time for classes, because you live for the social dance floor, this gig will give you a mid-week hit.
The PBC has a full bar, specialising in craft beers and local ciders, and the bistro is open for dinner from 5.30pm. Why not drop in for the class, or have something to eat before the band starts?
