Strap on your dancing shoes for a night with the premier swing dance band of the Southland, if not the world. Showcasing the small-group sound of the late 1930’s and early 1940’s, the Campus Five captures the true sound of the swing era, with all the energy and excitement that inspired millions to dance. Influences include the Benny Goodman Sextet, Artie Shaw’s Gramercy Five, Count Basie’s Kansas City Six, and the Harlem-based small groups of Illinois Jacquet, Cootie Williams, Coleman Hawkins, and Hot Lips Page. Rusty Frank leads mini-lessons at 6:00 and 7:00pm. All levels welcome, period costume encouraged.
