At last Opus One Swing Dance Club managed to persuade Airlie Scott’s Pronto Swing to come and play for dancers at our Central London venue. From their first chord to the last note the band's joyful interpretations of the American Songbook, classic Swing numbers and other dancers favourites, as well as the title track from their latest CD - "Everybody wants to be a cat", filled the dancefloor with appreciative Lindy Hoppers and Swing dancers - young and old, new and seasoned. The upbeat energy of the musicians enhanced by the warm and assured vocal style of Airlie Scott set the hall alight! We had to let them run over time to prevent a riot! We have promised the dancers that we’ll have Pronto Swing back at the earliest opportunity (which we were planning to do anyway). What an evening! It will go down in the annals of history as one of the best nights spent out on the town!
