The Woodchopper’s Ball features a different band each week, offering you a variety of musical styles: big band swing, boogie woogie, Gypsy swing, jump blues, New Orleans trad jazz, retro-swing, rockabilly, and western swing. All of your favorite local swing bands, plus bands you may not have seen before. We believe that providing a wide range of music keeps things interesting, helps support the live music scene, and broadens your dancing, making you a more versatile dancer!
To keep the party going, bands play two 1-hour long sets: 9:15-10:15pm and 10:30-11:30pm, and the short 15-minute break features DJ’ed music.
Join us for a full night of music and dancing, and enjoy the largest variety of live swing dance music in town!

The Cosmo Alleycats are a San Francisco-based vintage dance band that brings to the stage a potent mix of vintage dance music with a dynamic, soulful delivery. The band’s talented musicians draw from several decades of exhilarating American music to deliver a fun and engaging performance–from 1920s Speakeasy & New Orleans Jazz and Big Band Swing to Classic R&B/Soul, Motown, and their own ‘twist’ on Contemporary Music.
