Mobtown Ballroom 8-Year Anniversary!

October 18th and 19th features the Chelsea Reed 5-piece (Friday) and 9-piece (Saturday)--two incredible nights of dancing and jazz to celebrate one of the weirdest places in Baltimore.

The basics: We throw a lot crazy events here, and for our anniversary we've decided to blow the whole wad on an excellent band and two evenings of the finest dancing and drinking in Baltimore. While both nights will be open to the public and all are welcome, Friday night will be more of a classic Mobtown madhouse, and will include a drop-in beginner lesson at 8. Saturday, we will open the doors for an hour of toasts, stories, and memories at 8, with music and dancing at 9. We hope to make Saturday a night where our regulars can dance--with a little space--to a large band and also take a beat to appreciate the community that they've build here. Both nights, we intend to go late, late, late. Saturday, we request slightly more formal attire.
