HSDS PRESENTS: Michael Gamble & The Gamblers

What: The Gamblers
When:  18 April 2015,  7pm - 11pm
Where: The Flying Monkey Theatre
2211 Seminole Drive

This month HSDS is excited to welcome Michael Gamble and The Gamblers all the way from Asheville North Carolina!

The Gamblers is a good-time dance band that indulges in an eclectic picnic of early American jazz and roots music styles. Their joyous sound basket is filled with a mouth watering collection of musical snacks from artists such as bluesmen Clarence Williams, Robert Johnson and Charley Patton to under-the-radar jazz hipsters like Freddy Taylor and his Swing Men and the Washboard Rhythm Kings. With it’s affinity for easy tempos and vocal-driven, head-nodding, and heavy grooves, The Gamblers are great whether you’re dancing or just doing some old fashioned cavorting and carousing.

Bandleader Michael Gamble’s 10+ years of work in every aspect of the global swing dance community informs the band’s repertoire and taste. The Gamblers embody the joy and infectious energy of early-20th century American Blues and Jazz!

As always there will be a beginner swing dance lesson from 7pm-8pm before the band starts at 8pm.

General Admission is $10 and students are $7.

HSDS Presents: The Gnarly Parkers

What: The Gnarly Parkers
When:  14 March 2015,  7pm - 11pm
Where: The Flying Monkey Theatre
2211 Seminole Drive

One of our all time favorite swing bands is back this March!

This group is the hottest swing band in Nashville and they are bringing back the classic sound of traditional swing music. The music will get your fingers snapping, feet tapping and even your hands clapping. In fact, you may just want to be out of your seat dancing the whole time they play. 

It all goes down March 14th at the Flying Monkey Arts Center, 2211 Seminole Drive SW. There will be a beginner swing lesson from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and then the band takes the stage until 11 p.m. 

Also, we'll be hosting an Int/Av and Beg Balboa workshop earlier that day at Madison Ballroom and are inviting Balboa dancers from far and wide to dance with us all night to this fantastic live band! Find out more information about the workshop HERE.

Come out and hear the Gnarly Parkers as they return to Huntsville March 14th at 8 p.m. We promise you’re going to love them as much as we do! As always, admission is $10 for general and $7 for students and active military. We’ll see you there!
