In an evening that perfectly fits the art deco heyday of Fleetwood Marine Hall, Swinging at The Cotton Club is an action-packed show celebrating the music, dance and songs of New York City’s most famous nightclub of the 1920s and 30s.
This feelgood show presents the hedonism and exuberance of Harlem’s legendary nightclub in a glittering blend of vintage jazz, showbiz and dance.
Selling out up and down the country, the Cotton Club is brought to life by the furiously-paced, authentic routines of The Jiving Lindy Hoppers, and the nostalgic sound of Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra, featuring vocalist Marlene Hill and compere/vocalist Megs Etherington.
The Jiving Lindy Hoppers are Europe’s first and finest authentic jazz dance company. They are best known for their spectacular and breathtaking performances of the Lindy Hop – the original form of jive dancing that developed in Harlem in the late 1920s.
Hundreds of performances have followed their first public performance in London in 1984, and they have won numerous awards for both their education and performance work and regularly appear both here and abroad in festivals and major concert halls.
The show starts at 7.30pm on Saturday, May 17. Tickets are £15, to book call the box office on 01253 887693 or visit www.marinehall.co.uk.
