Attention, ballroom dancers and fans of Big Band music! The Lincoln Pops Orchestra, an 18-piece band voted “Best Live Music 2011” by the readers of the Newport News-Times, will bring their vintage sound to the Lincoln City Cultural Center for a dance concert on Saturday, Sept. 8.
The doors will open at 6:30 pm, with music to start at 7 pm. The Pops will be playing classics from the Swing era, with plenty of danceable rhythms and Latin favorites. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door, with snacks, sodas, water, beer and wine sold by the LCCC volunteers.
“The response to the Pops last concert, in July, was overwhelming. So we decided to bring these musicians back for more. The acoustics are great, the dancing is terrific, and we split the gate proceeds with the band. You can help raise money for two non-profit arts organizations, and have a great time doing it,” said Niki Price, LCCC executive director.
Come to dance, with or without a partner, or just sit and listen to these classic American songs.
The Lincoln City Cultural Center offers performances, fine arts, art classes and visitor information inside the historic Delake School building at 540 NE Hwy. 101. The September event calendar also features the ukulele pop of the Craig Chee Band on Sept. 15, and the World Music duo of Antonio Calogero and Paul McCandless on Sept. 22. The Reverend Benny Bob (aka Ben Soeby) will be showing new works in the Chessman Gallery throughout the month of September.
