Flappers, Dapper Gents, Sophisticated Ladies and Dancehall Legends will all be here to rub shoulders, mix, mingle, dance and celebrate the golden era of social dancehalls of a century ago. True to the Original Jazz Dancehalls the best nights brought not one, but two top bands to entertain the audience.

The bands performing are two of the most respected Jazz dance bands in Europe: Meschiya Lake and The Dizzy Birds (US/DR) and Gentlemen & Gangsters (SWE)
