An iconic mainstay of Midtown Manhattan’s Restaurant Row, SWING46 Jazz Supper Club will commemorate its 20th year with a month of celebrations
SWING46 is New York’s (and the world’s!) only supper club entirely dedicated to presenting live jazz music for dining and dancing — and from May 26 to June 30, every night will be an anniversary party.
Open nightly, seven days a week, the club will present longtime favorite acts.
“SWING46 prides itself on hosting bands regularly. That mutual loyalty, that love and respect between musicians and management, is so important — we think longtime fans and first-time guests alike enjoy that ‘family’ feeling throughout the house,” said Promotions Director George Gee, who also leads his eponymous Orchestra from the SWING46 stage at least twice a week.
During its anniversary “month” May 26 – June 30, SWING46 will present these favorites:
Mondays: Swingadelic — 10 pieces playing classic Big Band arrangements
Tuesdays: George Gee Swing Orchestra — 10 pieces playing a mix of jazz favorites fromthe American songbook plus new songs and arrangements, with featured vocalists Shenel Johns and John Dokes
Wednesdays: Stan Rubin Orchestra — 17 pieces with guest vocalist Joe Politi playing classic arrangements of top hits from the original Swing Era.
Thursdays: an exclusive rotation of NYC’s top 17pc. Swing Big Bands
Fridays: Rotation of The Ron Sunshine Orchestra and George Gee Orchestra
In respect to and appreciation of the important relationship this music has with swing dancers, SWING46 also presents a beginner dance lesson every night, with instruction by its own teachers or from the club’s official dance studio partner, You Should Be Dancing...!
As club proprietor John Akhtar points out: “Everyone is a dancer at heart — these dance lessons provide a bridge between the musicians on stage and the audience. That’s why we have a nightly dance floor: music, food, cocktails, and dancing…. it’s all part of the scene! We love to keep everybody happy and swingin’!”
In addition to serving up great music, SWING46 is frequently lauded (and Zagat-rated!)for its fine Modern American cuisine. Guests can choose to dine in the showroom, in the bar, or even out on the recessed streetside patio when the weather suits.
This intimate and elegant atmosphere is found mere steps away from Times Square and Broadway’s theaters, right in the heart of Manhattan, at 349 West 46th Street.
