Verdi Club: The Hot Baked Goods at the Woodchopper’s Ball
August 13 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm
THE HOT BAKED GOODS:
The Hot Baked Goods are a band of young jazz musicians playing hot tunes of the 1920s and ’30s. Most of the band members started as swing dancers, and became so infatuated with the music that they decided to make some themselves! They have quickly become one of San Francisco’s most popular swing dance bands!
The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district. Named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), it features monthly classes, a full bar (21+ only), and a dance party with a drop-in lesson and the largest variety of live swing dance music in town!
* LIVE MUSIC DANCE PARTY, 9:00-11:30pm, with a different band each week! $10 admission, all ages. Includes a drop-in Basic Swing dance lesson (9:00-9:15pm), perfect for complete beginners (no partner required)!
