Put on your dancing shoes! The first Friday evening of every month, from 7:00 to 9:30, the Moonlight Serenade Orchestra takes you back to the big bands and ballrooms of the 1930s and 1940s. Hear favorites from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and more. Tunes range from swing and foxtrot to latin rhythms, the occasional rock or disco, and even a polka. Dress up or come casual - you'll fit right in.

Not a great restaurant, so eat somewhere else before going. But a great band and opportunity to dance to swing and Big Band music. They also play a scattering of modern songs arranged in a Big Band style. Even a rock-and-roll song once in a...More
