Riverside JASS Band!

We had so much fun dancing to live music last weekend that we decided to do it again this Saturday, June 10th!

Speakeasy Swing is proud to introduce THE RIVERSIDE JASS BAND to the dance community. Come to the Speakeasy this Saturday — Grady and Jessica will be teaching a drop in Six Count East Coast swing dance lesson at 8:15, followed by the Riverside Jass Band from 9 to 11 p.m. DJ Feet on Fire will finish out the night!

$10 admission to both the lesson and the dance.
