SWING ON IN, BAARTZY'S BREW & MORSE CODE

SWING ON IN, BAARTZY'S BREW & MORSE CODE

Hey, Gold Coasters, what’s your jam?

You’re invited to grab some free JOY and kick up your heels in a social swing dance taster class, then clap along and watch an epic swing jam led by light-footed legends Ray and Chrissy Keepence from Swing On In.

Tap your retro toes and raise your pulse as Baartzy’s Brew and Morse Code join forces and play off all the favourite tunes of the Big Band era. Then try to resist jumping to your feet to shimmy and spin when all the swing dancers hit the floor to jam it out!

“FROM HARD-DRIVING FUNK TO EVOCATIVE BALLAD, FROM BLUES TO LATIN TO TANGO … FASTIDIOUS AND EDGY BUT PLAYFUL AND FUN TOO…”

– Baartzy’s Brew, The Age
