9th Street Stompers are back in town!
The 9th Street Stompers are an outfit of well-dressed no-counts chopping on acoustic instruments and singing about life, death, love, and liquor. Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, they cull up the musical scenery of an era when the lines between swing, gypsy jazz, blues, rockabilly, and tango weren’t nearly as hard and fast as the drinking and dancing. Steering clear of much of the novelty and kitsch associated with pre-war music, they choose to demonstrate the modern relevance of their chosen medium.

Haven’t danced before? No Problem. A beginner lesson is included in admission and will get you started to dance the rest of the night. No partner necessary. We switch dance partners often in the lesson and during the dance. We're a social dance club and the best way to work on your dance skills is to learn how to connect with different dancer styles and levels of experience.
Attire: Casual for DJ nights; Dress-up for live band nights. Closed toe shoes required. Veteran dancers, we suggest low-friction (fast) shoes for the tiled floor.
