Next party: Swinging at the PBC with Hetty Kate and Ian Date (4th December 2013).
It's the end of the year, and we're going out with a BANG at the Petersham Bowling Club.
- When: 6.30pm Drop in beginner swing dance class
8.00pm Live music with Hetty Kate (vocals), Ian Date (guitar), Natalie Morrison (bass), John Morrison (drums).
- Where: Petersham Bowls Club, 77 Brighton St, Petersham.
- Cost: $15 for the band alone, or pay just $5 if you're doing the class as well (tickets at the door).
Don't want to dance? That's cool - the PBC has plenty of seating and we'll put the band on the (tiny) stage. These guys are great entertainers, so it's nice just to sit, watch, and enjoy the music.
Who is Hetty Kate?
The dancers' darling, Hetty Kate has sung at pretty much every Australian lindy hop and blues event in the country: MLX, MSF, Canberrang, Jumptown Jam, Southern Blues, BBS, SLX... She's just recorded an album with THE Gordon Webster and she swings like a gate. Check out her music here.
Who is Ian Date?
Now based in Ireland, Ian is one of the 'Date Brothers': jazz guitar MONSTERS. Well, more gypsy jazz fiends than monsters, Ian Date is one of Australia's best jazz guitarists. He also swings like a gate. Check out his music here (Jive At Five and Blue Lou are especially good).
