On Saturday, January 7, 2012, I will be one of three DJs battling it out in the first ever Triangle Swing Dance Society Battle of the Genres. I will be representing pre-WWII swing, Jason Sager will be playing post-WWII swing, and Kristy Milliken will dish out a healthy portion of blues, soul, and anything else you can swing out to.
We’ll also be continuing our March Madness-style battle of classic swing songs, where you’ll vote with your feet and your applause to determine the best classic swing song!
Saturday’s showdown is from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Murphey School, 3717 Murphy School Road, Durham, NC. Admission is $7 for members and students, $10 for non-members.
And eat your Wheaties! It’s going to be an awesome night!
Ohmy, that sounds totally freakin’ awesome! How was it? Any winners?
The genres battle was a bit of a bust because one of the DJs’ sound card fried at the beginning of the set. The March Madness style bracket had a clear winner – Count Basie’s Jumpin’ at the Woodside!
