Tin Cup Serenade at The Woodchopper’s Ball

March 21 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Tin Cup Serenade

With influences from Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Muddy Waters, Tom Waits, Charlie Parker, Bessie Smith, Django Reinhardt, and Hank Williams, Tin Cup Serenade performs both classic and original swing, jazz, blues, and Americana.  The band has an approach to improvising that goes back to the Basie big band of the 1930s–wherein horn players improvise behind the soloist–although with Tin Cup, it’s voice and horns creating spontaneous harmonies on the fly.  The result is a timeless sound all their own.


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!


* LIVE MUSIC DANCE PARTY, 9:00-11:30pm, with a different band each week! $10 admission, all ages. Includes a drop-in Basic Swing dance lesson (9:00-9:15pm), perfect for complete beginners (no partner required)!

* FULL BAR & LOUNGE, 7:30pm-closing (21+ only)! Enjoy a classic cocktail in the swanky vintage bar and lounge!

* 2,500-SQ-FT DANCE FLOOR: Large, beautiful, hardwood dance floor with plenty of room to swing out!
