Drumming Up Excitement with 7DS for Dances-- On Pause
From weddings to the Summer Solstice Festival to regular Friday night Swing Jams at Sugar Swing, Stephen had until recently been keeping busy with the Seven Deadly Syncopators, a band for swing dances. Since its first dance on 27 Jan, 2017, 7DS has:
-been the first band to play in the new Sugar Swing Ballroom
-played for a Great Gatsby themed party
-played for the Summer Solstice Dance Festival
-Performed at the Lindy Harvest Dance Festival
-the wedding of 2 of Edmonton's most prominent swing dancers.
-Performed at Round Midnight in Calgary.
-Created a monthly Swing Music Jam night at the Sugar Swing Ballroom
-Performed for the St Joseph's Ignite Gala at the Chateau Lacombe
-Performed for New Years Eve
-Performed for Edmonton's Swing 'N Skate in City Hall
This 7-person traditional swing band is made up of musicians who, for the most part, are also swing dance instructors. It has been a project I have always been super excited about...
As with most swing-dancing events, it is somewhat on pause in these times of Covid.
