Oops! Live Music At The Lindy Hop THIS Friday Night
My report of live music last week was a week premature. Sorry about that! The post-holiday haze had me confused. At least I had the instructors right. The Red Hot Lindy Hop lesson and session continues at the Rumba Room this Friday night with live music from the Swing Lowe Trio. Free beginner lesson at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $7. Lesson by Caesar and Amanda with music by DJ Amanda on band breaks.
