Swing Tucson!

We are a local community of swing dancers dedicated to our favorite hobby–the vernacular jazz dance of Lindy-hop.

Warehouse Stomp 1/6/2012

It’s so awesome to have a weekly venue in town finally.  Last night had a pretty good crowd since Phoenix sent down quite a large delegation.

I thought it would be fun to start posting my set lists from every time I DJ.  There are a few artists that I’m really into right now so you’ll see them appear multiple times on the set.  Once I figure out a quick way to export play lengths and BPM I’ll start posting that too.

So here goes…

Song Artist
On Revival Day (A Rhythmic Spiritual) Bessie Smith
Long Gone John Gordon Webster
Lavender Coffin Lionel Hampton
Corinne Died On The Battlefield Preservation Hall Jazz Band;Tom Waits
Bizet Has His Day The Solomon Douglas Swingtet
I Like Pie, I Like Cake The Four Clefs
Hot 7 Paul Lenart
Shake It And Break It Preservation Hall Jazz Band;Andrew Bird
Just Because You Can Catherine Russell
Drop Me Off In Harlem Boilermaker Jazz Band

December 520 Swing Cancelled

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to give a heads up that we will not be having 520 Swing this December (as in years past) simply due to the proximity of the holidays and lots of people leaving town.

See you all in the New Year!

Hot Club of Phoenix Comes to 520 Swing

Saturday, August 20th, 7:30pm
Hot Club of Phoenix at 520 Swing

We’re excited to be hosting our first ever live band at 520 Swing in August.  The Hot Club of Phoenix is no stranger to playing for dancers having appeared at Al Moro in Phoenix and at the Albuquerque Lindy Exchange. Known for playing gypsy jazz in the style of the great jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt, they are sure to keep you dancing the whole night!
