Register by Friday, October 11 to receive a t-shirt.
Dress for the occasion and come out for a nostalgic night of swinging music and dancing with Kylan DeGhetaldi (from Postmodern Jukebox) and the HOT Jazz Swing Ensemble.
Since 2016, drummer and band leader Tom Leitzke has been bringing together co-host DeGhetaldi and other talented performers for a night of “retro nouveau” Jazz Age Music — “a blend of vintage popular swing music and postmodern style arrangements. The infectiously danceable, family-friendly event, attracts swing dancers and jazz aficionados of all ages, from throughout the Bay Area” — Santa Cruz Sentinel
DeGhetaldi solidified his extraordinary talent and energetic style performing with Postmodern Jukebox nationally and abroad.
