Theme Nights

Rhythm Junction is bringing theme nights to Minneapolis.  The premise is simple, instead of asking DJs to keep the floor full with music from any genre/composer/orchestra, they will attempt to do so within a specifici genre/composer/orchestera.  It presents a challenge to the DJ and an opportunity for dancers to hear and dance to “Deep Cuts” from various artists that they may not otherwise get to hear.

Balboa

1st Mondays

Balboa is a shuffle step generally danced to faster music in close embrace. The “Balboa” got its name from the Balboa Peninsula at Newport Beach, situated on the coast about 40 miles south of Los Angeles in California. The dance was first done at the beach Pavilion and then latterly at the famous Rendezvous Ballroom. (lindycircle.com)

We offer a monthly balboa taster class on the first Monday of the month with instruction by Krista Haskins and Aidan Dunne.  After class, music for Balboa dancing is played until 1030pm or so. (Check the events page for this week’s offering!)

Back Alley Blues

3rd Mondays

The Blues is a style of music and dance unto itself.  An older cousin to the Lindy Hop, blues dancing is danced today to music both new and old. The dance comes from a central concept of core movement that is related to that of Swing’s core movement. While technically not a “Swing Dance” with music that can and does Swing, you’ll find Rhythm Junction’s Blues offerings in the “back room” to give dancers the option of their regular swing fix or a taste of something different.  There are many classic examples of Blues music and artists, a ranging from Bessie Smith to Jimmy Ray Vaughn and St James Infirmary to Double Trouble.  Local artists include Moses Oakland and Davina and the Vagabonds.

We also offer a monthly Blues Dance for Lindy Hoppers on the 3rd Monday of a month with instruction provided by Collectively Blue.

Gypsy Jazz

The first theme night of Rhythm Junction is to be an emphasis on Gypsy Jazz.  Artists such as Django Rheinhart and Stéphane Grappelli, bands such as Swing Gitan, Twin Cities Hot Club, and the Hot Club of Detroit.  Some classic Gypsy Jazz songs are Limehouse Blues, Swing ’42, Nuages, and Dark Eyes. Wikipedia writes,

Gypsy jazz (also known as “Gypsy Swing“) is an idiom often said to have been started by guitarist Jean “Django” Reinhardt in the 1930s. Because its origins are largely in France it is often called by the French name, “Jazz manouche,” or alternatively, “manouche jazz,” even in English language sources. Django was foremost among a group of Gypsy guitarists working in and around Paris in the 1930s through the 1950s, a group which also included the brothers Baro, Sarane, and Matelo Ferret and Reinhardt’s brother Joseph “Nin-Nin” Reinhardt.

New Orleans Jazz

New Orleans Jazz, aka, Dixieland, an early style of Jazz that was developed in New Orleans, is the earliest style of Jazz music. The style combined earlier brass band marches, French Quadrilles, ragtime and blues with collective, polyphonic improvisation. While instrumentation and size of bands can be very flexible, the “standard” band consists of a “front line” of trumpet (or cornet), trombone, and clarinet, with a “rhythm section” of at least two of the following instruments: guitar or banjo, string bass or tuba, piano, and drums.

Bands today often associated with Dixieland are the South Side Aces, Patty and the Buttons, Meshiya Lake and the Lil’ Big Horns, and the Palmetto Bug Stompers. Famous traditional Dixieland tunes include: “When the Saints Go Marching In,” “Muskrat Ramble,” “Struttin’ With Some Barbecue,” “Tiger Rag,” “Dippermouth Blues,” “Milenberg Joys,” “Basin Street Blues,” “Tin Roof Blues,” “At the Jazz Band Ball,” “Panama,” “I Found a New Baby,” “Royal Garden Blues” and many others. All of these tunes were widely played by jazz bands of both races of the pre-WWII era, especially Louis Armstrong. They came to be grouped as Dixieland standards beginning in the 1950s.  You should never request a New Orleans Jazz Band play When the Saints Go Marching In, especially if you’re *in* New Orleans.
