The London swing dance community join The Silver Ghosts seven piece swing orchestra for a Friday evening of high spirited revelry in the capital.

The Silver Ghost whose upbeat swing performances have previously effected exhilarating 'Boardwalk Empire/Gatsby' style atmospheres at venues like Ronnie Scott's bar, The Savoy, and Royal Albert Hall, are offering you the opportunity to delight in their upbeat experience and swing dancing with accompanying meal in within the resplendent enclaves of The Cafe in the Crypt under St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

"Their musical craft (not to mention showmanship) is nothing less than a 101% convincing, hence the overall result being all rather infectious."

The Silver Ghosts live performance
The repertoire evokes the breathless and high spirited dance gigs of the 1920s 30s and 40s. A weave of quirky, upbeat numbers like Rose Murphy's 'Busy Line', the risqué 'Jack I'm Mellow', polite dance orchestrations like 'My Woman' and Harry Warren's sophisticated 'Too Many Tears', together with some familiar standards but performed in their original 'pre cold war', jazz ensemble style.
