On Thursday, September 29, 2022, this one-of-a-kind event will celebrate the Roaring Twenties of the past and the future. Your evening will include thrilling performances by Ron Paley’s Big Band, swing dancing, drink stations from local vendors, food stations prepared by Chef Ben Kramer, and so much more.
After the events of the past two-plus years don’t we all need a night out, all dressed up for a good old-fashioned dance party?
The Ron Paley Big Band
Ron Paley is a Winnipeg Legend. You’ve been missing out if you haven’t experienced Ron and his big band live! Ron rose to prominence on the local music scene as a composer, arranger, and leader of big bands and small ensembles. He is a perennial act at the Jazz Winnipeg festival (either with the Ron Paley Big Band or in small ensembles) and has performed in concert with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet
The Ron Paley Big Band was formed in 1976, and has since performed numerous jazz concerts and dances, appeared at Expo 86 as part of a western Canadian tour, and travelled widely in Manitoba. We cannot wait to dance all night with Ron and his incredible ensemble of musicians!
Ron’s Big Band at Dance Hall will include 25 talented musicians on hand to fill the space with music. Horns, percussionists, vocalists, and you name it will ensure this is one night of music that you won’t forget!
Nathan Lee and members of the Winnipeg Swing Dance Community will teach you to dance ‘Swing’ to help you move to the tunes of Ron Paley’s Big Band!
Nathan has been a member of the Winnipeg Dance Community for over 20 years and has taught Swing, Lindy Hop, Blues, and Charleston, just to name a few. The performance this evening will be from members of the Winnipeg Swing Dance Community. They will be more than happy to help you through a lesson at Dance Hall to guide you as you learn about the dance.
