The PKO is one of Michigan's finest, oldest, most respected and well-traveled jazz bands. The PKO has held forth every Monday night, for over 28 years, in Ann Arbor, first at the Bird of Paradise Jazz Club, then at the Firefly Club & Keystone Martini Bar and now at the Zal Gaz Grotto. The PKO's voluminous library of over 1,000 arrangements includes classic, obscure and original big band material from the entire history of jazz.
Two-time defending champions, 15-piece Swingmania from Toledo plays a wide variety of the classic swing and big band music of Miller, Ellington, and Basie plus favorites such as Sinatra, Fitzgerald, Cole, Prima and Presley. They have a solid hold on the swing scene in Northwest Ohio.
Dancers of all skill levels are welcome. Many come just to enjoy the sights and sounds. Dress is semi-formal or vintage attire. General admission begins at 6:30 p.m. with a dance lesson from 7 to 8 p.m. The band will hit the stage at 8:15 p.m. and perform until midnight. There is a cash bar available throughout the evening. Dress is snappy casual to semi-formal; or vintage attire.
Tickets are $27 per person in advance or at the door. Add $5 for the optional lesson. Tables of eight may be reserved in advance at no additional charge.
