It may be cold outside this month, but you can head to Third Place Commons to warm up with Swing into the New Year, a month-long big band and swing music series! Enjoy classic tunes from the swing era, beloved melodies from the great American songbook, and rousing vocals on all your favorite standards every Saturday in January. The series begins this Saturday, January 7th at 7:30 PM with the vintage jazz of Miss Rose and Her Rhythm Percolators. This trio’s playful repertoire harkens back to the gilded age of flappers and speakeasies with a fun-filled set lively enough to send you spinning across the dance floor faster than you can say “Charleston.” Then be sure to mark your calendar and join the fun all month long with the Swingnuts on January 14th, Sophisticated Swing Band on January 21st, and the Moonlight Swing Orchestra on January 28th. Of course, Friday nights are always a good time at the Commons as well, and this month is no exception. Check out these great acts each Friday in January: · Jan. 6 – Honky Tonk Sweethearts (Country/Rockabilly) · Jan. 13 – Mark Whitman Band (Blues) · Jan. 20 – Cara Francis (Vocal Jazz) · Jan. 27 – Brazz (Brazilian/Jazz) All Friday and Saturday night musical performances begin at 7:30 PM. Like every event at Third Place Commons, these fantastic, all-ages performances are free and open to everyone. So head to the Commons this month to let the beloved melodies of yesteryear (along with some modern classics) warm your heart on even the coldest nights of the year. And of course, dancing is always welcome at the Commons, so take a swirl across the dance floor to get your blood pumping, too. You won’t want winter to end!
