B&O Veterans Swing Dance
It was the era of a toe-stomping Chattanooga Choo Choo -- a time when today's World War II veterans were young soldiers fighting a major war. To honor these brave men and women, the B&O Railroad Museum is hosting a Swing Dance inside its 1884 Roundhouse. Bumper Jacksons, recognized as the region's "Best Traditional Folk Band" at the Washington Area Music Awards last year, are re-imagining early jazz and street blues with power and tenderness, in the spirit of a good old-fashioned dance party!
Amateurs receive a 30-minute dance lesson beginning at 7pm. Beer, wine, sodas and light snacks available for purchase. Costume or period dress encouraged but not required.
A portion of the proceeds benefit A Taste of Home, an apolitical and non-partisan organization that provides acts of kindness for Maryland's sons and daughters in harm's way.
