UPDATE: The dance is still happening despite government shutdown. We’ll see you there!
Get started on your new year’s resolution by coming out to our first DCLX’tra of 2018 with Halley Shoenberg’s Hot Gumbo Swingtet on Saturday, January 20th! Whether your resolution is to try something new, dance more, meet some new people, or just to get out of the house, we’ve got the perfect thing to get you started.
A local from Silver Spring, MD, Halley Schoenberg is a musical chameleon who plays the clarinet, saxophone and the flute. Which one depends on the group she’s leading or playing alongside. Her groups have played at DC area festivals such as the Bethesda, MD Fine Arts Festival, Alexandria, VA Jazz Festival and the Silver Spring Swings concert series, and she has played at major venues including the Kennedy Center, National Parks, at the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival and Blues Alley. Halley’s groups play everything from swinging originals to noted modern-era favorites, so you’ll be sure to find a tune that makes you want to tap your foot when Halley’s Hot Gumbo Swingtet is up on the Spanish Ballroom stage!
