As you may know, Mike Daugherty, who plays drums in just about every swing band in town (and out of town!), recently lost his home to a fire. He and his wife, Julie, are rebuilding their lives. Savoy Swing Club, and the swing dance community, want to help support them in their time of need. To that end, please donate here: http://gogetfunding.com/project/julie-mike
Also, come to our dance on April 28th, for several sets of live music from:
Falty and the Defects
The Solomon Douglas Quartet the Careless Lovers
Dave Holo and his Holotradband
The dance starts at 9pm, door charge is $12 for SSC members and students, $15 for the general public. All proceeds will go directly to Julie and Mike. Please note, the dance will be going later than usual, to accommodate all the awesome live music, so prepare your dancing feet for extra swing outs on Monday!
There will be a raffle. There will be cake. More details about this event to be announced soon (check out the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1487352494809635/). Save the date, don’t miss out.
Are you a student? Students now receive a discount for all classes and dances! We are excited to work with our awesome partners over at University of Washington Swing Kids Club. More reasons to come visit Savoy Mondays to feel the excitement of what is Lindy Hop!
