The stellar “River City Swings,” the jazz-swing group formed within the legendary Sacramento Youth Band kicks off the dancing song list, led by Steve Biingen from 1 p.m. to 1:55 p.m. It’s musicians come from many area high schools.
This dance marks a consecutive 10 year run of 90 ballroom dances, all presented by California’s only Big Band Preservation Society.
The Society has featured five different 15-piece orchestras playing America’s nostalgic songs before crowds from 100 to 9,000 enthused dancers in giant ballrooms, hotels, night clubs, auditoriums, amusement parks and pavilions during the popular 1920-1950 period.
The Irish Spring Ball will be held on Sunday, March 27 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sacramento Elks Lodge No. 6, located at 6646 Riverside Blvd. in Sacramento. Admission is $10 – $12. For more information, call (916) 444-6138.
