*****************************************************
DRESS CODE: Guests are strongly encouraged to fuse vintage (20s) with contemporary in their attire.

*****************************************************
The event will feature various electro-swing elements. For those unfamiliar with the electroswing movement: Electroswing music has its roots in the swing jazz music of the late 1920's & early 1930s. By the early 1990s, swing samples & influences were becoming popular again. By 2004, the first attempts to fuse swing music with electronic house music started to appear, spawning the term 'electroswing.' The juxtaposed style rose to popularity in underground clubs around Europe (in cities like London, Paris, and Zurich) circa 2008-2010, and has since started to make its way into North America and Asia. See the videos below to learn more.
