Join us at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Sunday, March 5, 2023 for Swing with the Big Bands. Presented by Friends of the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
St. Johns County Residents are invited to dance and enjoy The TBA Big Band’s rendition of the melodic rhythms of Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and More. The TBA Big Band is the most popular big band in North Florida.
Before the first set begins, aspiring and experienced dancers alike will enjoy a free dance lesson. It will be led by Two-Time World Dance Champion and acclaimed instructor Heiko Leyhausen, owner of the Arthur Murray Ponte Vedra Dance Center.
After their introduction to the Foxtrot, East Coast Swing and more, dancers can show off their new-found swing skills or just relax and enjoy an evening of big band tunes by the The TBA Big Band. The 17-member band include retired Navy, Army and Airforce drummers and brass section members, plus the Director of Jazz Studies at University of North Florida.
The event will also offer refreshments, including a 1940’s signature cocktail served in the most sophisticated nightclubs – the French 75, a bubbly medley of sparkling wine, gin, lime juice and simple syrup. The French 75, as well as other refreshments are available for purchase.
