Rusty’s Platinum Jubilee Dance 20-Year Swingiversary
On October 1, 2017, over 300 swing dancers joined me to celebrate 20 years of Lindy By The Sea and Rusty’s Rhythm Club. We danced the night away at the El Segundo Automobile Driving Museum to the Ladd McIntosh Swing Orchestra, with the ABC’s of swing (Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Count Basie). It was a dream come true for me, to be surrounded by dance friends old and new.
On hand were legends Jean Veloz and Anne Mills, plus DJ Robert Vangor, MC Maxwell DeMille. And I even got some proclamations from my hometown mayor and the City of Los Angeles. What a night!

Thanks to all who made this a memory of a lifetime.
