The two biggest names on the electro swing scene come together to celebrate the sounds and styles of the swing era in a 21st century all-day, multi-media celebration...
We are hoping for a laid-back, sunny, fun day. Nothing too hip or cool, just a whole lot of alternative FUN on a swing tip. Daddy-o
Forget the boring stuff. Sneak out after lunch and come join us...
We will have an exceptional 3-floor, all-day friendly line up that includes:
A 78's Disco on the roof from UNEVEN STEPHEN (where the bar-b-que will be going all day) - check the pictures - http://www.thequeenofhoxton.co.uk/home/
Vintage legends EL NINO (from Lady Luck and Black Cotton clubs) and LADY KAMIKAZE
3 times world DMC champion DJ SWITCH with his incredible Electro Swing set (we also hope to coax him into offering informal scratch DJ lessons during the afternoon!)
Black and white movie mash ups and more from NICK HOLLYWOOD (of White Mink compilation fame)
CHRIS TOFU, festival veteran and all round king of the ding
THE WORLDS TALLEST DJ, the nicest guy we know and also the tallest
Dance from the astonishingly cool TWILIGHT PLAYERS
Swing dance lessons from SWING PATROL come learn the new and old steps of swing before the party goes into the night .
MARAWA - Russian Queen of the Hoop from 'La Clique'
FREAKEASY CIRCUS REVUE - Tall Will and more of his Invisible circus chums...
Live Music from:
Jive and jump blues specialists, the incredible, good-times 11 piece FAT 45
The splendid French swing-hop trio ALGORYTHMIK
COMPLIMENTARY COURVOISIER PUNCH
Vintage movie screenings
and much, much more...
Those that feel so inclined can dress in contemporised 1920s and 30s style - but think more juke joint than speakeasy; gatsby caps, braces, swinging styles - we are going for the comfortable all-day dressed down Shoreditch ting innit!
