On Friday, February 17, the Olympic Express Big Band plays for Discovery Dance at the Port Townsend Elks. The dancing begins at 8:00 p.m. following a free (with admission) dance lesson in Swingin’ Foxtrot taught by local dance instructor Janice Eklund. New dancers are encouraged to attend. Elks members and guests welcome. This is a smoke and scent free event for all ages. No partner or previous dance experience is necessary to join in the fun.
The Olympic Express Big Band has been delighting dancers for years with its repertoire that ranges from big band swing to boogie-woogie to jazz and Motown. Their seventeen-player ensemble brings a depth of sound, without amplification, that is almost impossible to experience anymore. Brighten a dark and cold February evening with the magic of a big band and a great dance floor!
