Saturday, August 7 | The Atlanta Swing Orchestra | Swing Dancing@LaPrade's
The Atlanta Swing Orchestra originally started from a group of musicians in the Atlanta Lawyers Orchestra who decided that they wanted to play swing band music. The jazz band was known as "Frivolous Motion" which is a well known legal term for time wasting endeavor.
As time went on, the lawyers became fewer and musicians from many other professions joined the swing band. The motion has become less frivolous and it was decided to pursue forming a professional dance band in the tradition of the great swing bands of the forties and fifties. While they all understand it is unlikely to become a lifelong vocation, the goal is to play the big band American song book and do it well enough to continue this great tradition into the new millennium.
For an extra special evening, there will be swing dancing at LaPrade's or on your pontoon boat, you do you!
