Eric Shifrin

Eric Shifrin & The In Crowd

Eric Shifrin has been performing and leading his band The In Crowd in the Bay Area since the early 1990’s.  For this special appearance at the Woodchopper’s Ball, he has assembled a swinging all-star lineup featuring everybody’s favorite drummer Mark Lee, and Michael Leal Price on bass.  On loan from the Cosmo Alleycats will be the blistering front line of Peter Cornell on sax and Konstantins Jemeljanovs on trumpet.  Eric will lead the proceedings from the piano chair and will also contribute the occasional vocal.  Get hep to the jive, and swing with them at the Woodchopper’s Ball!


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!
