Get ready for some hip shakin,’ foot stompin,’ caterwaulin’ crooning with the Side Street Steppers from Memphis at the Huntsville Swing Dance October event. The Side Street Steppers are a page from America’s past, playing rare and popular music from the 1920’s and 30’s. Dubbed the Golden Age of the Gramaphone Recording, the two decades between 1920 and World War II saw the rise of jazz and the birth of the blues, the demise of ragtime and the emergence of hillbilly music that would become known through the world as country music. The Side Street Steppers present a pastiche of this transformation of the American musical landscape by performing on vintage and homemade instruments. There is a beginner dance lesson at 7:00 PM and the band begins at 8:00 PM. Admission is $10 general, $7 students.
