Where Great Music Begins
Think of the great duos of Ella/Louis, Fred Astaire/ Ginger Rogers, Sinatra/Dean Martin…
…they all paved the way for many more great partnerships and Swing Junction might just be added to that formidable list.
From the beginnings of swing music in the 1920s to current songs with a twist they’re sure to take you on a toe-tapping journey and set the scene for a fun night for all musical tastes.
