Verdi Club: Swing Fever at the Woodchopper’s Ball
November 13 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Having cut their chops with jazz legends, Swing Fever’s musicians are some of the Bay Area’s most experienced, bringing an authenticity that fans love and critics appreciate. At the same time, the band treats Swing Era music as a living breathing form, to which the players bring fresh excitement, new arrangements, and unusual instrumentation to their huge 1700+ song repertoire. Clever, fun, romantic, moody, witty–here is wonderful, classic swing music presented in its full emotional range!
The Woodchopper’s Ball, named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), is a weekly Tuesday swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco.
