The Big Band sound is a uniquely American combination of reeds, brass and rhythm that defined America's popular music for more than three decades. Swingtime Big Band vividly brings this classic music to life in three-dimensional sound, authentically recreating the style, musicality and essence of the Great American Songbook. Bring your dancing shoes! Dance lessons are at 6:30, band starts at 7 pm.  Rain location: Union Temple, 17 Eastern Parkway.

The Plaza Swing Series is made possible with the generous support of Sandra and Peter Schubert and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
