Serenade” Dinner Dance, April 21
Get ready! Here it comes! The Second Annual Big Band Dinner Dance is going to happen again with music, dancing, and good food that will provide an evening of food, fun, and reminiscences. Relive the romantic era of swing music with tunes from the likes of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and Benny Goodman. You are about to enter the 1930’s and 1940’s for an evening of memories at the Greencreek Community Hall, located six miles from Cottonwood, Idaho.
On Saturday, April 21, in a benefit for The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude, the 16-member Hog Heaven Big Band from Moscow, Idaho, will perform music that makes everyone want to dance. One O’Clock Jump, Moonlight Serenade, Deep Purple, and Taking a Chance on Love are some of the melodies that bring to mind memories of the big band era and a time when you could slow dance or jitterbug the night away…or just listen to tunes with lyrics and melodies you could understand.
The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with a no-host cocktail time. Dinner begins at 6:30 with a complete dinner with all the trimmings. After we have a chance to roll back some of the tables, we will give the signal for the music to begin at 8:00 until 11:00. The no-host bar will be available through the evening.
The cost for this exquisite evening of food and dance is $25 per person. While not required, we do encourage you to dress in the styles of the 30’s and 40’s. Prizes will be given for the best dressed couple, best dressed man, and best dressed woman. We want our guests to enjoy the evening and to be able to relate to an era that is still only seen in movies of the time.
