The Cottontails are one of San Francisco’s most exciting, talented, and versatile swing dance bands around, playing a wide range of styles: 1920s Gatsby-era jazz, classic 30’s/’40s swing, and vintage ’50s/’60s R&B. Something for everyone, and fun for all! Featuring Karina Denike, whose “vocal prowess recalls traditional jazz chops with modern style, relevance, and soul.” (The Owl Mag)
The After-Hours Jam Session is now a regular monthly feature at the Woodchopper’s Ball, happening on the last Tuesday of the month, 11:30pm-1:30am, immediately following our regular Live Music Dance Party. Spread the word!
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!
