Join us as we step back into the raucous swing dancing era of the1930’s at Leinster Cricket Club with Lulu’s Swing Band.
If you’ve never tried swing dance before this is the perfect opportunity to dip your toe with a fun beginners class to start the night. You don't need any prior experience or to bring a partner with you as we will be rotating throughout the class.
Charlie Moon (born March 8th, 1989) is an Irish jazz guitarist, singer and composer based in Dublin.
He is the son of jazz singer Mia Parsons and legendary blues and jazz guitarist and singer Nigel Mooney “Ireland’s King of the blues” - BBC. He was exposed to a variety of music at an early age and on the night he was born, his father played support to B.B. King in the old stadium in Dublin with his then famous ‘Gripewater Blues Band’, so Charlie’s genes were steeped in the blues and jazz traditions from day one.

"Duke Ellington was the most important composer in the history of jazz as well as being a bandleader who held his large group together continuously for almost 50 years. The two aspects of his career were related; Ellington used his band as a musical laboratory for his new compositions and shaped his writing specifically to showcase the talents of his bandmembers, many of whom remained with him for long periods.
