The third year of the Swing Rag brings the atmosphere of the famous rags from the time of the First Republic and will again be full of energetic swing music, dance, goodies and last but not least positive esprit! In addition to the traditional program, the new CD by the Fats Jazz Band, called That Old Feeling, will be launched!
The Fats Jazz Band swing orchestra begins playing at 19:00, performing authentic hot jazz and swing music exactly the way you can listen to perhaps only on old shellac records. Seven great musicians and two charming singers will shift you into the prohibition era of 1930s, and they will also perform the chestnuts of that era of the Slovak pop music doyen – František Krištof Veselý and Czech star Inka Zemánková.
During the evening you will have the unique opportunity to learn the basics dance steps from swing dances for free from European master Peter Kepič of the Swing Wings dance school, Brno.
We offer you the opportunity to create a memory from the evening in pictures at the vintage photo corner in every dance room and it’s the same this time. Photographer Andrej Mann has again prepared a picturesque Paper Moon backdrop and funny props for you.
The evening is designed both for those who prefer coming together and having wine with good music, as well as for those whose feet cannot remain under a chair for a long time.
