Big Band Bash

Warm up your feet and dance away those winter blues by hosting a Big Band Bash. Hire a band to play all your favorite swing tunes and invite friends to join you for a jive. Guests should dress in vintage 40s style attire: bright red lips and pin curl hair for the gals and dress slacks and tweed hats for the guys.
