The Phantom Cowboys have announced a new concert date at The Cat’s Meow swing night at The Canary Social Club, Thorpe Road, Norwich on Friday 27th 2015.
The band will be unveiling new material as well as playing favourites from their cult classic album, Down and Out at The Club Cruella.
The Cat’s Meow is a monthly swing, jump jive and rhythm & blues club run by former UK Lindy Hop Champion, Robert Austin.
The Phantom Cowboys said “At first glance we may seem an odd choice for a dance evening, but we’ve always been heavily influenced by early swing musicians like Count Basie and Jelly Roll Morton.
“We’re not exactly a swing band, but we’ll be playing some new stuff and some fun old covers. We can’t promise anything, but we’ll do our best to keep it danceable!”
The night will also include DJ’s and a lindy hop lesson. Details and tickets will be available soon from the Norwich Swing Cats website.
