Swing Street Band's last summer dance is Aug. 31


CROSSVILLE — The 18-member Swing Street Big Band will perform the third and last dance of the summer season at the Fairfield Glade Community and Conference Center at 7 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 31.

The three-hour event is part of the resort’s Labor Day holiday weekend.

The band will play three 45-minute sets. Music will include swing, fox trot, waltz, cha cha, tango and rumba.

“We invite dancers of all levels throughout the area to join us. It’s a chance to smooth out favorite dance steps. We play a wide variety of music from fast swing to slow ballads and Latin rhythms,” said band director William Schneider.

Tables seat eight persons and may be reserved. Beverages are available for purchase. Guests may bring snacks.

The Fairfield Glade Community and Conference Center is at 128 Stonehenge Road, six miles north of I-40 (Exist 322, Peavine Road).

Tickets are $27.50 per couple ($13.75 per person), including tax, in advance. Reservations can be made and tickets paid prior to the event at the center. Phone reservations may be charged to a credit card by calling the center at 931-484-3722. The Community and Conference Center accommodates approximately 130 persons for the dance.

The band’s performance continues a 16-year tradition of regular big band dances in Fairfield Glade. Two more dances are scheduled later in the year — Saturday, Nov. 16 and Saturday, Dec. 7.
