Sunday Nights Swing w/ Live Big Band & Lessons
Swing dance to live music from The Hot Tomatoes at the Mercury on June 16th!
The Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra was formed in 1982 by former leader and founder, Ron Cope. Ron was part of a Downbeat award winning Traditional Jazz Band at the University Of Colorado – Denver. This group toured the country appearing on television and radio programs along with performing at traditional jazz festivals. With the advent of renewed interest in the Swing Era and swing dancing, the Hot Tomatoes transformed itself from a 1920s style band to a Swing-Era band performing numbers from Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and many others. The Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra soon became a regional favorite for concert goers and dancers alike and has performed not only in the Denver metro area, but also across the Western U.S. and Canada.
