NYC's SWING46 Jazz Club Announces George Gee as Promotions Director
As New York City supper club stalwart SWING46 Jazz & Supper Club nears its 20th year of presenting live jazz music nightly for dining and dancing, management has named world-renowned swing impresario George Gee to the new position of Promotions Director.George has been part of the SWING46 family since its very beginning - in fact, his eponymous big band was the first live act to grace the club's stage, right after opening night. And they have played every Tuesday night ever since... and many other nights as well! So there are few people more eager to sing its praises than George Gee. Two decades on, George is proud to say, "SWING46 is our home base here at the crossroads of the universe: Surrounded by Times Square, the clubs, the theaters, the restaurants. This is the only nightly jazz and swing dance club in the world! SWING46 could have EASILY done a salsa night or brought in tango, but it's a testimonial to their commitment to keeping this a swing dance club. And still succeeding!" A bandleader, DJ and jazz historian, George Gee and his Orchestra are in demand for dances, concerts and special events around the world. But he still considers SWING46 home and wants to bring a bigger spotlight to the club itself - especially as a milestone anniversary approaches. "SWING46 is a breeding ground of swing and the art of playing for social dancers. It amazes me, how important and well-known this club is to jazz and dance lovers around the world! I'll travel to the Far East, Europe and the West Coast and people will come to me and say 'Oh, we were in New York and saw you at SWING46. Or vice versa! At the club, I've had people say, 'We're from Scotland and people told us, when you go to New York, you have to go to SWING46! " In addition to serving up great music, SWING46 is frequently lauded (and Zagat-rated!) for its fine Modern American cuisine. Guests can choose to dine in the showroom, in the bar, or even out on the recessed streetside patio when the weather suits. This intimate and elegant atmosphere is found mere steps away from Times Square and Broadway's theaters, right in the heart of Manhattan, at 349 West 46th Street. And take note... This spring, SWING46 will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a supersized celebration: An action-packed birthday month so big, it needs five weeks! Stay tuned for more information on exciting special events May 26 - June 30.
