= SPECIAL CICADA CLUB EVENT =
You are invited to the 20th Anniversary party of Mora's Modern Rhythmists
thirteen-piece dance band devoted to playing classic jazz
and swing tunes of the early twentieth century.
Dean Mora began the band in 1994, performing
American popular dance music from the 1920s and early 1930s,
using period arrangements and transcriptions from the original recordings.
Following a series of small concerts around the Los Angeles area,
the Rhythmists were hired as the Monday night house band at the
world famous Derby, a nightclub situated in one of the original
Brown Derby Restaurants in Hollywood and was considered
to be the "ground-zero" of the Swing Revival of the 1990s.
Mora's Modern Rhythmists went on to earn the reputation as one of
the best swing bands in Los Angeles and then the nation.
Dean Mora and his Orchestra is Mr. Mora's current
dance band, but for one night only
Mora's Modern Rhythmists returns to the Cicada Club
for a special evening you won't want to miss!
Complimentary Dance Lesson at 7pm
