We play a jitterbug night every Monday night with young folks doing the Lindy 
Hop, Balboa and Shag to our (quartet) New Orleans Jazz and swing tunes. They 
dance non-stop to every song so when we take a break they play swing tunes 
and keep dancing. They play Benny Goodman, Ellington, Basie, Louis Prima, 
etc. It has been no problem for us.....the club used to have Karaoke on the 
break....that was a huge problem. (many dancers would leave)

The crowd is always delighted when we resume playing.
