Saturday Night at Lake Merritt Dance Center
Nirav Sanghani's Pacific Six
Don Neely and the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra and their smaller ensembles of the San Francisco Bay Area affectionately and authentically recapture the excitement, charm, and romance of the celebrated music originating from the 1920s and 1930s - often known as the Jazz Age and early Swing Era.

The Campus Stompers
Saturday Daytime at Kroeber Plaza
The Campus Stompers are a swing group based in Berkeley, attending UC Berkeley and the California Jazz Conservatory. They've been playing for years in various groups around the Bay Area and grew up playing traditional jazz and swing in Sacramento. We are a newer group but we love playing for dancers and are excited to swing for you!
