Traditional Jazz Fest

dixie downbeat 1 Dixie Downbeat 2The Dixie Downbeat Jazz Band is coming to Lantzvilles own Costin Hall on Saturday, May 24th. They will play a concert of traditional Dixieland music, and there will be space at the side for those who wish to dance. They will play a selection of music suitable for jive, Lindy-hop, Charleston, and more cuddly blues numbers. We hope to see Lantzvillagers and members of Seaside Community Society (who run Costin Hall) and their friends from come out and support this event.

The evening will have warm-up activities to make the evening a social event. At 6:00 there will a Pot Luck Supper. This is free, and we hope our friends will contribute a small dish of food. If you cannot bring food, come anyway; there is always lots! This supper will be accompanied by live Dixie music played by Graham & Friends, and dancing is encouraged. At 7:00 there will be a free lesson in Ragtime dancing, given by Diane & Gordon. This will include the famous Castle Walk and the One-Step. It will be simple and it will be fun.

At 8:00 the Dixie Downbeat Jazz band will play, until 10:00. Admission for this part of the evening is $15.oo. Ticket information is available at or email, or phone 250-390-2625. Or come at the door.
