Women in Jazz: a Celebration with The Blue Shoes
Due to the taxi strike, we have decided to move the event to Sunday 13 August (1-7 pm), in the hope that the roads will be clear over the weekend. The community’s safety is our first priority, and we hope that you will be able to celebrate with us on Sunday. If you are no longer able to attend because of the date change, a refund will be possible — please email email@example.com.
Despite the wintery chills, the Winelands will be blossoming this Women’s Day to the sounds of some of the most influential female swing jazz artists from the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s. The Blue Shoes Swingtet, a fiery five-piece swing jazz band, will be laying down this special repertoire as the perfect soundtrack to an afternoon filled with wining and dining in celebration of all the fabulous women in our lives, all set to the backdrop of the beautiful Stellenbosch mountains. What could be more perfect?
Book your tickets to secure your table at Forest 44 and come and enjoy the show. And for those feeling in the mood, don’t forget to pack your dancing shoes, as the Cape Town Swing dance community will be out on the dance floor to turn up the thermostat and make sure everyone’s left feeling warm inside.
The Blue Shoes Swingtet will be gracing the stage between 2 and 5 pm.
