It's pretty likely you know of Seth Kibel - he plays with some of the best bands in jazz and swing, and has made a name for himself in the Washington/Baltimore region on saxophone, clarinet, and flute. He is featured with the Sean Lane and Bay Jazz Project, Music Pilgrim Trio, The Natty Beaux, The Alexandria Kleztet, and more. This guy's won 28 Washington Area Music Awards, seven of them for Best Jazz Instrumentalist! To top off an already great sounding evening, the rest of the Quintet are Flo Anito on vocals and Seth's "A-List" Musical Warriors!

Flying Feet is thrilled to be bringing back the Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra to Glen Echo on Saturday, February 9th for our annual Red Dress Ball. Proceeds for the evening will go to American Heart Association!

This classic 14-piece swing dance band features the original Big Band arrangements of Count Basie, Billy May, and Nelson Riddle in their performance of music from the great bands of the Big Band Era -- Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Harry James, Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, and more. Come hear what led the Washington Post to exclaim that they "set a standard not easily matched" or what led PBS to feature the EFJO on their The Big Band Sound of WWII special! (www.ericfeltenorchestra.com/ for music clips)

This is one evening you do NOT want to miss!!! Don your favorite red threads (casual or dressy -- you decide!), grab your dancing shoes, and round up your favorite dance partners* for an evening of great music and fine dancing!!

Drop in lesson at 8pm by Flying Feet Enterprises; dance goes 9 to midnight!

Cost: $20/$15 students

She now fronts her own 11-piece Revival Jazz Band & boy do they swing!!! We heard them back in November and knew we had to have them play at one of our dances! As a dancer herself, Halley knows what the dancers want and trust us when we tell you that this band delivers!
