Yay – thanks to your great ongoing support and that of Copa management, we’ve locked in another batch of 4 mid-year Copa afternoon dates – the first Sunday of June, July, August & September (Father’s Swingin’ Day).

More great tunes, more great vocalists and our usual high calibre line up of Melbourne’s top jazz and session musicians, including band members from high profile TV & Melbourne theatre shows.

And by popular demand, the ‘B# / Swing Patrol Copa Combo’ will be on again!

That’s right folks… Swing Patrol, is comin’ to the Copa party on these 4 dates providing a swing dance class prior to the B# performance!

It’s a great opportunity to build your repertoire of moves and enjoy the lush, invigorating sounds of B# even more! And what a great deal it is:

For an extra $5, you get an introduction to the wonderful world of swing dancing in an easy, fun, 45 minute lesson. Provided by a highly experienced Swing Patrol teacher duo, you’ll be up and dancing in no time. Bring a partner, a friend or just bring yourself – you’ll be in great hands with Swing Patrol! Simply arrive in time for a 12pm dance class, and for a total of $25, you’ll score yourself a 45min lesson followed by our 2.5hr Big Band performance. It’s a perfect way to enhance your Sunday afternoon swing experience!
