Pigalle Restaurant and Real Wired Music in association with Johnnie Walker present a night dedicated to swing dancing dubbed This Thing Called Swing. “We have DJ 20th Century Fox playing through the night and The Swing All Stars Big Band [20 piece] who will transport you back to the shebeens, juke joints and dance halls of the late 30’s to 50’s. This will be a nostalgic trip back to the heyday when swing was king,” says Campbell.
