This special evening celebrates the life of longtime friend of Midsummer Night Swing, Dawn Hampton, who passed away in 2016. Hampton—a saxophonist and cabaret and jazz singer before she became a regular among New York City’s swing community—will be commemorated by her good pals, Ron Sunshine and his Orchestra and the 17-piece George Gee Swing Orchestra, who will undoubtedly be inspired by Hampton’s advice: “let the music move you.” Tickets go on sale May 9, 2017 at noon.
Ron Sunshine and his Orchestra will play one set at 7:30, followed by one set by the George Gee Swing Orchestra. Special guests to be announced soon.
