Lovers of prohibition era swing, jazz and blues music are invited to join Gerald Schreiner, Daneel van Der Walt, David Lubbe and the Swing Cats to drink and dance away their sorrows the old fashioned way. With the country entering a technical recession, The Reserve At The Taj Hotel returns to the era of the Great Depression this September. With Schreiner and Van der Walt on vocals, Lubbe on piano and The Swing Cats on trumpet, trombone, drums, double bass and clarinet, SWING INTO SPRING promises a night of unforgettable music, with everyone able to dance the night away in fabulous outfits that celebrate the era of speakeasies and old school dinner dances.

Guests will be entertained with a mix of jazz, blues and swing music, including familiar standards such as "Too Darn Hot", "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" and "On the Sunny Side of the Street". There will be a dance floor, allowing everyone to get off their chairs and foxtrot, swing, tap or do the jitterbug. All guests are requested to dress the part - although it is not compulsory, costumes will add to the vibe - in flapper dresses, flat caps or any outfit that recalls the days of champagne glasses moulded off the breast of Marie Antoinette.

With SWING INTO SPRING set to launch a series of major monthly social events on the local social calendar, Capetonians are encouraged to book their tickets early. Dinner will be served, and a cash bar will be available, with patrons able to indicate when booking whether they wish to be seated for dinner or in the bar area for drinks.

SWING INTO SPRING takes place on 1 September. Dinner is served from 19:30, with the show starting at 21:00. Book securely online with a credit card or SnapScan by visiting the Speakeasy Swing website. Tickets for the show cost R120, which does not include the dinner service or drinks. The Reserve is at the Taj Hotel at 1 Wale Street in Cape Town.
