Spookeasy Halloween Dance

Come and swing it in a Depression era style at our Spookeasy event. We will be going full flapper with a 6 piece live swing band named The Palace Band from Errington. They bring us an assortment of swinging classics and originals, with some saucy dance numbers thrown in to boot. They were born as the house band of the infamous yearly Vaudeville events that help to fund that funky town’s musical event season at their community hall. They now wander the region getting folks grooving to the tunes of our parents and grandparents. They played with us at a Speakeasy event in Cumberland and made people go crazy. They will be doing 2 sets to keep it fun and swanky.


There will also be sets from Denman’s own Whiskey Tango Foxtrot who remix swing, blues, and funk with the modern sounds of now.


DJ Eliazar will also be spinning between everyone else’s sets, and to end the evening. There may even be some special guests….

The show is licensed, and will also be all ages, but we have other options for you if you just want to boogie down and not have to watch the kids. There will be babysitting services at the Seniors hall for free, though tipping your babysitter is always encouraged:) We will be offering snacks, movies, and music to the little ones, just have them bring their jammies and something to sleep on in case you are having too much fun on the dance floor to make it home before their bedtimes.

We will also be offering a FREE Swing Dance class from Jason Lee Kirch of ValDance in Courtenay for those who have always wanted to learn the proper moves for the flapper set. The class will be from 3:30-5:30 on the day of the dance, in the back hall, and will be free. It is for beginners and folks who already have some experience alike, as you will learn a great foundation and some special moves to make your mark on the dance floor. You can learn some great new dance moves with different partners, and be ready to cut up the rug for the night. If you want to be assured a place in the class please get in touch and we will put you on the list first come first served. There may still be space the day of the class, but best to make sure.
