As part of the 14th annual Washington DC Lindy Exchange (DCLX), there's a swing dance in Dupont Circle, complete with live music! Based in Baltimore and DC, the The Butler Parks Hot Serenaders play 1930s small-combo jazz in the tradition of Artie Shaw’s Gramercy Five ensemble and Benny Goodman’s septet. The Butler Parks Hot Serenaders specialize in the performance of traditional and original swing and pre-bop repertoire. The band gets its name from the location of the Jam Cellar, DC’s fine Tuesday evening swing dance. Located next to Malcom X / Meridian Hill Park, the Josephine Butler Parks Center is a historic 40-room mansion originally built to be the home of the Vice President.
