L.A. Swing Barons Live!

Because we're just the type of wildcard folks to randomly book a big band, you will have the immense privilege of dancing to the incredible L.A. Swing Barons on Friday July 6th. They specialize in that Kansas City Count Basie style, the kind of music Lindy Hop was meant for. This is going to be a special evening at Mobtown. We'll have cocktail specials, general shenanigans, and, if we're feeling funky, a dance contest. Dress to impress. Drop-in beginner lesson at 8, dance at 9. Bar opens at 7:30. $15.

Here's What the Swing Barons have to say about themselves: The L.A. Swing Barons are a Los Angeles based big band paying tribute to the greatest bands of the swing era. We specialize in recreating the famous Kansas City sound of the late 30's and 40's, such as the great Count Basie Orchestra. This style of music was famous for being the very best dance music out there in a time when everyone who was anyone knew how to dance. We also have a close affinity for the Duke Ellington repertoire, as well as music from many other great bands of the swing era. Check out our music and you'll find that you can't help but want to get on your feet and move to that swingin' beat.
