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!

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

Our favorite band from the 'Burgh will be back with us for another fun-filled night of hot jazz and swing!

To quote The Washington Post, Whether you're looking for hot jazz, ragtime, boogie-woogie or dreamy ballads, The Boilermaker Jazz Band plays some of the best dance music you'll hear without cranking up a 78 RPM record player. The group's attention to detail and finely honed sound have made it a favorite of local Lindy Hoppers.

Free drop-in beginner lesson by Flying Feet Enterprises at 8, and dance goes to midnight! (Or later if you stay for Late Night!)

$20, or $15 students, or get with Bigg Al (Alvar) to volunteer an hour and get in free.
Then just another $5 for LATE NIGHT post Boilermakers DJ'd blues in the Back Room from Midnight-2
.
.
PS Also mark your calendars for June 15's Professor Cunningham & His Old School - First time at Glen Echo!
