Live Music

Professor Cunningham and his Old School

"Professor Cunningham and his Old School were the clear crowd-pleasers of the festival"

- Times Union, Albany, New York

"Award winning multi-instrumentalist Adrian Cunningham has built a septet of young killers that serve up pure, uncut old school NOLA tunes...and make them sound showroom new."

- Review, Albany Jazz Festival

Take a growling horn section, a grooving and soulful rhythm section, a woodwind/vocalist frontman, add the soul of a New Orleans party, and you've got Professor Cunningham and his Old School. This 5-piece New York based swing band performs the most swinging and grooving repertoire deeply steeped in the New Orleans tradition. Formed in 2010, they have already performed in New York's major swing and speakeasy events, and late last year, performed at Snowball in Stockholm- europe's biggest dance event!

Jacob Miller and Nate Lown

Jacob Miller is a songwriter, vocalist, bandleader, and preservationist in regards to all things traditional American music. At the ripe age of 24, he has been performing around North America for over a decade and recently Europe - spanning the genres of country-blues, ragtime, hot jass, western swing, and old-time string band. Still fresh faced,Miller is eager to explore and share a chapter of musical history that is all but forgotten.

Nate Lown is a vocalist, guitarist, and trombonist specializing in jazz, jazz, jazz, and of course, blues. Hailing from Southern California, Lown moved to Portland several years ago to pursue and study jazz music at Portland State University.

The two are both members of one of Oregon's hottest jass band, Jacob Miller and the Bridge City Crooners; performing to swing and blues dancers near and far for the last 3 years. As a duo, Miller and Lown's repertoire includes western swing, country-blues, hot jass, pre-war blues, and ragtime numbers spanning the first several decades of the 20th century. Keep an eye out as the duo is guaranteed to provide a high energy, foot tappin' performance wherever they happen to play.

The Tipsy Gypsies

The Tipsy Gypsies are a modern gypsy jazz quintet (bass, drums, guitar, violin & vocals) performing original and cover arrangements. Often harvesting inspiration from the popular music domain, then rearranged to union with gypsy jazz instrumentation. In addition to their own prolific songwriting, the Tipsy Gypsies cover an array of crowd-adoring icons, including Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu, Tom Waits, Portishead, Sharon Jones & Louis Armstrong. Their upbeat, dance-inducing songwriting appeals to diverse audiences and age demographics, from the common listener to the inscrutable jazz aficionado.

From inspirations of love and love Lost comes one of the most enjoyable groups out of the central coast of California, The Tipsy Gypsies, featuring the lovely Hilary Langdon on vocals, Guitar player Forrestt Williams, Violinist Allan Dick, drummer Darryl Vandruff, and Double Bassist Brian Lanzone. These are the best musicians the area has to offer, but the chemistry the Tipsy Gypsies has during their packed live performances is greater than the sum of its parts.

The West End Stompers

The West End Stompers are made up of some of Sacramento's finest trad and swing musicians. Over the years, each member has traveled the country playing for lindy exchanges, competitions, and jazz festivals. The band was originally assembled by Justin and Brandon Au for the grand re-opening of Midtown Stomp, and continues to perform there semi-frequently. The Stompers are sure to keep you dancing all night long with their swingin’ tunes!

DJs


Adam Lee
Los Angeles, CA

Adam Lee started down his swing path in the 2nd grade when he started playing clarinet, and his grandmother bought him his very first record, which happened to be a Benny Goodman record. Growing up as a jazz musician, the addition of Lindy Hop to his life was a natural one. Adam started dancing in 1997 just a few months before the infamous GAP ad, and was dancing five nights a week. His passion is for the music of the swing era, specifically that of the Kansas City sound from the 30s. As a devotee of historical accuracy and cultural legacy, he teaches classes on music history and theory at every Lindy Hop and jazz dance event he can, and DJs dances the world over.


Lauren Stanley
Los Angeles, CA

Lauren Stanley has been dancing since she was five years old. She participated in ballet, gymnastics, ballroom dancing, and every sport she could compete in. She started dancing Lindy Hop in 2007 at LA's Lindy Groove, and soon started dancing almost every night of the week and competing regularly. Lauren is sought out as a swing DJ and competition judge. She has won and placed in a number of national and local dance competitions, including Camp Hollywood, the Lone Star Championships, Inspiration Weekend, Le Hot Sauce, and many others. Lauren loves the jazz lifestyle. From vintage clothes to swinging tunes, she has embraced the era wholeheartedly.


Ben Nathan
San Francisco, CA

Ben Nathan has been dancing Lindy Hop and Blues since getting dragged to a dance in 2003. After having the time of his life, he realized that the mixture of the music and movement was almost too perfect for words. In the years since, he has traveled to events all over the country, been an organizer of the San Francisco Lindy Exchange, and helped with numerous other events.


Lauren Chester
San Luis Obispo, CA

In June of 2002 Lauren Chester fell in love with Lindy Hop. Shortly thereafter, she fell in love with the music. In 2005 she began to DJ and fell even more in love with the music. Today, she just loves to spread the Lindy love by dancing, DJing, and teaching. Love life, y’all. Dance.


Nicole Trissell
San Francisco, CA

Nicole has been a dancer her whole life. Ballet, West Coast Swing, Lindy hop and Tango are all dances that have driven her need for expression through movement. But when she discovered Blues 5 years ago, it was love at first dance. She fell in love with the movement and the music, and soon after started dabbling with DJing and expanding her blues music collection. These days she DJs often in her home scene of San Francisco as well as all over the country and world as she travels, teaches and shares her passion for blues movement and music.


Steve Yang
San Francisco, CA

Steve loves to dance. Steve loves to DJ. Steve loves to DJ for dancers. Lyrical & expressive, rhythmic & dynamic, gooey sweet, down & dirty, and slow & melty blues, Steve can and will play a wide range of music designed to keep the creativity flowing, and keep everyone on the floor. Get ready for an amazing time, sloX!


Mark Carpenter
Nomad

Mark learned how to dance right here in SLO just over ten years ago and owes so much of his life to the generosity and kindness of the community here. While in SLO he was heavily involved with the CP Swing Club and was one of the co-founders of Drop Dead Blues way back in 2007. After leaving Cal Poly in 2010 he has been nomadically traveling the world to dance, meet people, and explore life. In that time he has been asked to dj (and teach) at dance events as far away as Australia and Korea. His musical offerings tonight will range from gut-wrenching acoustic blues to soul-lifting jazz to the best new orleans big-band. Enjoy.


Brian Holliday
San Luis Obispo, CA

Brian discovered dancing in 2009 and began djing on his very first dancivesary. Brian discovered that having the right music playing at the right time is not just a task for the dance venue. Whatever the occasion, be it on beach, on a road trip, or coding at a desk having the best music playing for the mood is a daily pursuit. Some of Brian's new favorite blues genre's include New Orleans, Piano, and Electric . It is rumored that the only reason Brian's face doesn't melt off from listening to such juicy tunes is because it is held up by his beard.

Jack & Jill

We will be hosting our annual Jack and Jill competition. Here in SLO we pride ourselves in providing a friendly and encouraging environment so that everyone feels welcome to try new things. Therefore our J&J not only focuses on musicality, technique, and individual style, but it also puts a lot of emphasis on just having fun! Bring your best moves and connection to inspire awe in our judges.

Sign ups will start at the Friday Main Dance for $5. The prelims will be held at 9:45pm and the finals will be held at 11:15pm at the Saturday Main Dance. Spots are limited, so make sure you are there to snag one on Friday and pick up your number before 9:30 on Saturday to keep it!

Rules and Format:

1. No aerials/air steps, lifts, or deep dips; general dance safety should be followed.
2. Prelims: Two heats of ten couples will dance in four-six all-skates, changing partners in between each. A dice roll will determine each partner change. During this round, the couples will be judged on their individual style and dance ability.
3. Finals: A dice roll will determine the pairings for the 10 finalist dancers. The five couples will remain together for the duration of finals and will be judged as a couple. There will be an all-skate, followed by a spotlight section (two spotlights for each couple), and move back into an all-skate.

Video and photos will be taken of the competition and published online.

About Us

Tucked away in rolling hills covered in grape vines; surrounded by agriculture; and only 15 to 20 minutes away from at least three beaches, San Luis Obispo has been called the “Happiest City in America.”

In the quaint downtown, you will find college students, retirees and tourists taking advantage of the carefree weather as they meander through the shops and cafes and along the creekside. During the evenings, restaurants and bars will host local music to compliment their local menus. Every Thursday night, Higuera St. is bursting with people enjoying the fresh produce, hot food, and live music at the farmer’s market.

SLO dancers take full advantage of the live music on weekends, but they don’t stop until Monday night after Swing Dancing at the Madonna Inn. We are extremely lucky to have a free venue with such eccentric, pink decor and character as the Madonna Inn. Weekly social dancing has been organized here by the SLO Rugcutters since 2000 and draws dancers of all ages and levels. Every year they entice our scene with a prize of delicious Madonna Inn cake at the “Madonnaween” costume contest; if you want a shot at winning, it is advised to start planning your costume in November!

Along with the Madonna Inn as the foundation of our scene, we also have waves of new dancers who start taking lessons with the CP Swing Club when they attend Cal Poly. With flyers posted all over the campus, we get dozens of new freshmen and upperclassmen looking to try something new! We entice them with our laid back Sunday afternoon lessons and social dancing and hook them when they carpool with us to the Madonna Inn or attend our fall lindy or winter blues workshops.

The CP Swing and Drop Dead Blues clubs are student run with support from Cal Poly. You would not realize it by their chill demeanor, but aside from dancing all weekend, the officers have full time classes, part time jobs, other club involvement, and lots and lots of studying to do! They make the time to plan and run the weekly venues and large events, because they are all incredibly passionate about bringing these dances to the Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo communities.

Check out their bios to get a glimpse of their lovable quirks!


Indigo Bannister
Swing President

When you’re the president of the CP Swing club, you have to know how to wear a lot of different hats. Don’t worry, though, because Indigo owns a vintage hat for every occasion! When she’s not out climbing the hills cataloguing plants for her Environmental Management & Protection major, you’ll find her dancing up a storm in vintage threads. So keep an eye out for one of her many hats, and make sure you dance with the girl who makes it all possible!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Taking a restorative walk in the Cal Poly Arboretum and then going by the Equestrian Unit and say "Hi!" to the spring foals.

Emily Foley
Swing Lessons

This lover of the silly and weird is one of the bounciest belles on the dance floor. Don’t believe me? Just watch her pulse through her magnificent ponytail! Emily is a City and Regional Planning major but her spontaneity is anything but planned. She is a fan of all things Marvel, so it’s almost like this exchange was her secret master plan. Ask this Hulk loving girl to dance and she will show you her smashing repertoire of jazz moves and creative stylings.

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Going anywhere that sells ice cream or froyo!

Jessica Wallace
Advertising +

Have you ever wondered how you received all those great flyers at your venue or how you learned about the excellent events that CP Swing Club hosts? Well look no further than Jessica Wallace. Jessica has a passion for dancing but what you may not see at first glance is her deep love of all things food. With her culinary skills she creates a diverse array of sweet and savory meals that will tantalize your taste buds. The character she exhibits in her cooking is exemplified in Jessica’s flashy blues atheistic as she crafts the perfect dance experience. Ask Jessica to dance especially if you want to see some exquisite blues dance moves.

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Enjoying a cup of tea or coffee at Bella Mundo or some Kombucha on tap at Bliss

Patrick Kallas
Blues President

As the president of a Blues club you have to be quite an interesting person, and Patrick is exactly that. He enjoys soil more than most people and has traveled large distances just to see different types of it. He is a “dig site” for sore eyes, coming to sloX straight from a Cal Poly Soil Judging Team event in Arkansas. He is working hard towards an Environmental Management and Protection major and shares many classes with Indigo. He is a great dancer of both swing and blues, so make sure you ask him to dance!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Visiting the Soil Pits on Cal Poly campus and in the stream beds/p>

Valentina Sainato
Blues VP & Lessons

The only thing this gal loves more than dance is probably sweaters. Or cats. Or sweaters with cats on them. Val is in charge of organizing lessons and instructors, as well as taking charge of the venue whenever our Blues Captain decides to walk the plank. When Val isn't dishing out her Blues and Lindy, this English major is most likely either cramming yet another ten-page paper or expanding her dance repertoire with lyrical, contemporary, hip hop...you name it! If you're looking for a dance with lots of room for expression and fun, be sure to ask for one with Val! (Bonus points if you ask in Italian).

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Yoga, anytime and anywhere!

Nate Homan
DJ coordinator

Nate Homan is our #1 music man. He’s helped our swing and blues scenes find a sound that’s 100% SLO. Also, thank him for booking all of our great DJ’s! After your dance, ask him about dnd, his favorite board games, or his Environmental Engineering senior project. Nothing pleases Nate like a perfect swing out or some bomb charleston, and he always knows when to throw in a good jazz move.

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Hiking Bishop’s Peak

Kendra Dimino
Graphic Designer

This artistic genius is easy to spot on the dance floor with her bright red mane of hair, spectacular outfits, and enthusiastic swivels. But just because she looks fabulous doesn’t mean she can’t engage in some clever verbal sparring! Kendra is always ready with a sarcastic quip that is sure to put a smile on your face. When not designing awesome decorations and t-shirts, she can be found playing video games, singing with local bands, or digging deep into a jar of peanut butter. Make sure you catch this crimson-headed wonder for a dance this weekend!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Doodling in a sketchbook in any of the downtown coffee shops

Kevin Church
Swing Bands

Innovative. Thoughtful. Hard-working. These are a few words used to describe this enthusiastic dancer. Kevin is responsible for bringing to us the rich, vibrant tones of some of the greatest live jazz bands around. An Architectural Engineer, Kevin likes to spend his time on a multitude of creative hobbies, such as playing music, writing poetry, drawing, making puns, and, of course, dancing! He enjoys using dancing as another way of making art, which is evident in his unique and fun dancing style. Make sure to find this cool cat on the dance floor for a legendary experience you’ll never forget!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Going to Poly Canyon, Linnaea’s Cafe, or the Umbrella-covered seating above the University Union (after midnight)

Anthony Delgado
Blues Bands

This soon-to-be Pokémon Master traveled across the land, searching far and wide to bring you the very best blues duo from the Pacific Northwest Region. His goofy dance moves will knock you out, and he’ll be sure to capture your heart with his infectious smile. Catch Anthony for some micro blues, and watch as the dance evolves into a rap about his studies in microbiology!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Going to the archery range

Grant Solorio
Carpools & Invasions

This fun-loving bowtie aficionado is full of fun facts: he is a black belt, he grew up on a farm, and can make balloon leprechauns like a boss! This grinning Forestry major tackles all things tricky, from invasions to housing with care and efficiency. For fun times as big as as Grant’s hair, be sure to ask this multi-talented Lindy Hopper to a dance!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Hanging out downtown, especially in the antique stores

Alina Lusebrink
Treasurer Emeritus

Alina’s friendly and chill personality might make her seem laid back, but she’s one of the busiest bees in the club. She does everything dealing with money, contracts, budgets, and schedules. This is in addition to rigorously studying Materials Engineering, working at the Performing Arts Center, and playing music in her free time. Alina is easy to spot in a crowd. She loves wearing bright colors, especially yellow, and matches her socks to every outfit! Alina loves dancing with new people: it keeps her dances fresh and fun!

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Spending time Down by the Riverside (aka, the creek)

Emily Guerra
Position

Emily loves the arts and it's clear that the arts love her back. Whether she's producing huge paintings for her Art classes or posting her detailed sketches on Facebook, her creativity never fails to impress those around her. She's talented and humble, with a smile as bright as her blonde hair. In addition to the visual arts, Emily has a dance style that's as cool as she is! If you're looking for a chill, creative Lindy vibe, she's the person to ask.

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Going to antique stores downtown

Katie Breyman
Video Recaps

With real smiles and a hopeful aura, this joyous dancer spreads her dedicated soul over a plethora of passions. She lends herself to all things Architectural Engineering, Theatre, and Lindy Hop. Katie holds a wonderfully genuine devotion to each and every dance. Whatever you do, don’t miss the opportunity to connect-up with this bright individual to some swingin’ music of the night.

Favorite thing to do in SLO:
Exploring downtown

Hot Shots

The Hot Shots are the CP Swing and Drop Dead Blues Clubs newest recruits! Now that they have found their love of these dances, they will carry on the CP Swing tradtion into the next 10 exchanges!! They have been helping us organize the event and are preparing for future roles in the club. So, ask them to dance!
