February 23rd from 8pm to 11pm
The best live Gypsy Jazz in the state.
Deco Dance Tampa Bay believes in supporting local musicians and brings the best in live music to Tampa Bay area swing dancers. Rejoicing in the original intention of our vintage dance, we celebrate the natural energy and improvisation of dancing to live music just as our predecessors in Lindy Hop did. To continue supporting local bands, we need to pack Scout Hall with 55 dancers! Help Deco Dance Tampa by inviting your friends, new dancers, and music enthusiasts.

"Hot Club of Sarasota - "Reputably the most swinging, versatile and refined Gypsy Jazz ensemble in the South"...
Hot Club of SRQ - We play Gypsy Jazz that is deeply rooted in the styleof Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. This music simply swingsand is full of beauty and romance! We emulate the style of what theFrench call "Jazz Manouche" and "Le Jazz Hot" in the style of Sinti virtuosos and the "Quintette du Hot Club de France" circa 1934-1948."
