Swing dancing is back at Tapestry Folkdance Center featuring Beasley’s Big Band on the third Thursday of the month.
Thursday, September 16
Beasley’s Big Band is a “classic” big band (18 members) that plays music from the 40’s-60’s, popularized by such greats as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and others. Founded in 1991 by North Minneapolis jazz legend Chuck Beasley, the band’s library was custom arranged by Chuck. Unfortunately we lost Chuck to cancer eight years ago – but his legacy of great jazz lives on.
