The Silver Bell Jazz Band
The Silver Bell Jazz Band represents authentic jazz with a beautiful blend of jazz roots that moves the soul and makes you dance! With clarinetist and international Lindy Hop instructor Ryan Calloway leading the band, they play with a special focus towards dancers. Ryan arranges and brings together musicians from all over the Bay Area, and with a rotating cast of all-star jazz musicians, you’re sure to get a fresh, breathtaking experience each and every time, just like in the early jazz sessions.
The Woodchopper’s Ball, San Francisco’s swing hot spot, is a weekly Tuesday night swing dance event held at the historic Verdi Club in San Francisco’s Mission district. Named after the classic 1939 swing tune by the Woody Herman Orchestra (and their biggest hit!), it features monthly classes, a full bar (21+ only), and a dance party with a drop-in lesson and the largest variety of live swing dance music in town!
