SwingColumbus presents The Boilermaker Jazz Band wrapping up their latest Midwest tour with a swing dance in Columbus, Ohio! This band is highly sought after by swing dance events across the country, with a wide repertoire that will make you swing to a classic jazz standard, get sentimental over an old-time ballad, boogie to a hot jump tune, or get low-down with a gritty blues!
The Boilermaker Jazz Band has performed at major festivals, concert halls, ballrooms, colleges, and clubs throughout the world- including Lincoln Center in New York City, The Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland, and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.
Everywhere they go, they deliver the good feelings that real jumpin’ jazz can create. Paul and the Boilermakers have recorded six critically acclaimed CD’s and have received rave reviews for their excellent live performances. The Boilermakers have been featured on radio shows across the country and overseas, including a National Public Radio Jazz Series that was broadcast on over 50 stations. Their music is beloved by swing dancers all across the globe and can be heard at dance events from Sweden to South Korea to Australia!
SwingColumbus will provide a fun beginner swing dance lesson at 8pm before the band takes over at 9. No partner or experience needed – the lesson will start from scratch and rotate partners frequently. Non-dancers are also welcome – seating will be available near the band to enjoy the show!
