Wednesday 30th May 2018.

Come and celebrate World Lindy Hop Day (albeit 4 days after Frank Manning's birthday) at Opus One with Airlie Scott's Pronto Swing. -

Join us for swinging vocal jazz, soulful bluesy ballads, french chanson and vintage dance favourites. Pronto has its heart in 30s - 50s swing, with a contemporary twist, and just a hint of the Continent. Engaging vocalist Airlie leads her band of talented swing musicians, combining her love of the American songbook and early swing classics with a dose of theatricality and fun. Pronto musicians have played at Ronnie Scott’s, The Vortex, The Royal Albert Hall and Buckingham Palace to name a few. Music made famous by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sidney Bechet, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Etta James, with the occasional classic pop song or French chanson thrown in!

Airlie Scott- Jazz Vocals, Alan Gibson-Double Bass, Roger Lewin-piano, Dee Byrne- Sax, Francesco Corallini- drums.

We have a fun warm up Lindy Hop / swing class suitable for absolute beginners at 7.15. 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). The high quality of the band and class reflect the entrance fee of £15 (or £12 unwaged) for the whole evening.

Bring your your good selves, 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.

You can come on your own or with friends. Opus One was voted the friendliest club in Britain 2017 and we're already on our way to win that coveted award in 2018.

8.00 Our DJ The "Mad" Hatter starts us off on the social dancefloor.

8.30 Pronto Swing onstage.
