November 14, 2015 at Glen Echo Spanish Ballroom in Glen Echo, MD.

Grab your dancing shoes, support the USO, and join us at Glen Echo‘s Spanish Ballroom on Saturday November 14th as the fabulous Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra helps us step back in time as we recreate the sights and sounds of a time gone by…..in addition, we will be celebrating the 100th birthday of Mr. Frank Sinatra, so you’ll be sure to hear some of your favorite Sinatra tunes that night as well!

The Eric Felten Jazz Orchestra is a classic 14-piece Big Band that really knows how to swing!! They feature the original big band arrangements of Count Basie, Billy May, and Nelson Riddle. Don’t take our word for it — the Washington Post says that the EFJO “sets a standard not easily matched: in its 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. It’s no wonder that PBS selected the EFJO to provide the soundtrack for their show The Big Band Sound of WWII.

Beginner lesson: 8 – 9 pm
Dancing: 9 pm – Midnight
$18/person (youth discounted). Proceeds to the USO!!
Vintage attire (military or civilian) highly encouraged!!
