Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing

July 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

MSNS w band names postcard

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.
