George Gee Swing Orchestra to Return to the Suncoast Showroom, 7/4

Bring your dancing shoes down to the Suncoast Showroom for the George Gee Swing Orchestra, featuring vocalists Hilary Gardner and John Dokes, for a one-night-only big band dance event on Friday, July 4.

Music by the George Gee Swing Orchestra elegantly balances genuine traditions with exhilarating modernism. This versatile ensemble performs everything from a sweet foxtrot ballad, to rock and soul party favorites and all-out rollickin' roadhouse boogie.

Gee is considered the world's only Chinese-American swing big bandleader, offering a unique cross-cultural perspective to audiences. The Orchestra played at Ozzy Osbourne's 50th birthday party in Beverly Hills, and was the first modern-era swing band welcomed from the West to perform at a swing dance event in Japan. Additionally, Quincy Jones arranged for the band to perform for the Royal Family of Jordan.

Vocalist Dokes is an accomplished baritone, singing a mixture of blues, ballads, popular songs and jazz standards. Gardner possesses a love for the history of the big band, has distinct vocal chops and has proven to be a perfect foil during featured duets.

For one special night only, the Suncoast Showroom will feature dance floor space from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $15.95, plus tax and convenience fees and the event is general admission. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075, or visiting
