Wednesday 28th August with Pete Long's Pocket Basie.

This evening we welcome back Pocket Basie. A more talented group of musicians you are unlikely to find. Led by Sax supremo Peter Long, musical director of Ronnie Scott’s Big Band and including long time arranger and musical director for Brian Ferry, pianist Colin Good.

Pete put the band together especially for Opus One and they have gone on to wow the dancers at a host of other clubs. It’s therefore logical that they love to play here in their spiritual home, Stern Hall. Dancers and the listening audience love coming here, what with the friendly atmosphere, air conditioning and the great acoustics, and they appreciate our insistence of quality Swing music.

We have a beginners Lindy Hop / swing class suitable for absolute beginners at 7.00. Uncustomary to common practice, we teach lead and follow from the start which sets dancers on course to social dance independence in the shortest time, enabling them to Lindy Hop with anyone, anywhere.

Every patron has the chance of winning a free entry next month, ask Anna on the front desk for details.

Our Art Deco dancehall has been recently renovated with a new wood floor and air conditioning (unheard of in swing clubs in Britain).

£15 or £12 unwaged all in, cash on the door for the whole evening.

7.00. Doors open.

7.15. Warm up beginners Lindy Hop class.

800. One of our Dancing DJs will be on the decks to warm you up.

8.30. Pocket Basie onstage

No need to book or bring a partner, you can come on your own or with friends. Wear something comfortable and flat-ish shoes. Some dancers love to dress up and some don't, so wear what you like. We provide endless glasses of water and liquorice allsorts. (And a free fridge magnet.)

Opus One has been voted the friendliest club in Britain 2017 -19 How do we do it?... Read more.
