Here's a clip of lindy hoppers Maggie Moon, Jennifer Jones, Eden Atencio, Mike Jaeger, Dave Graybill and Roddy Caravella performing in the "Sleigh Bells Swing" musical revue. Choreography by Evita Arce.
I had a wonderful night at "Sleigh Bells Swing" with a bunch of friends at the elegant Edison Ballroom in Times Square. The evening began with a delicious four-course dinner, with great service from our waiter. At around 8:30, the musical revue began, which included the full George Gee orchestra (including a strings section!), an Andrews Sisters-esque act, John Dokes on vocals plus another very good male vocalist, a hoofer, and the lindy hoppers mentioned above.
After the revue, there was a short break, followed by another set by the orchestra for general dancing, plus DJed music. There were several dancers there on the evening that we were there, but I would recommend bringing a partner just to be safe.
If you are game for a very Christmas-y, schmaltzy, 1940s era musical evening, you can't go wrong with "Sleigh Bells Swing." My parents would have loved it, and my group had a great time. "Sleigh Bells Swing" runs through January 5 at the Edison Ballroom. Produced by George Gee and Mickey Marchello.
