These guys have been together for almost two decades, delivering their own style of rockabilly, honky tonk, western swing style to the Green Mountain State.  Full of energy and enthusasm for great dancing, they will keep you on your toes all night.  We're looking forward to seeing Danny, Billy and Big Al back on stage!

$15 admission/$10 volunteers (to volunteer, let us know at contact@vermontswings.com)

We'll have a beginner swing lesson from 7:30-8pm downstairs, then the band plays from 8-11pm.


No dance experience or partner required.

For the benefit of your dancing and our floor, please bring clean shoes with smooth, non-marking soles. No stiletto heels permitted.

The bar will be open to purchase non-alcoholic beverages and beer and wine.

Danny Coane, the rockin' pride of Vermont, just keeps rollin'. He has fronted bluegrass, country and blues bands, but the rockabilly, rock 'n roll act "The Throbulators" gained him national exposure. Billy Bratcher holds down the beat for the trio on upright bass. He toured with Texas Juke Joint King Wayne Hancock and became well known throughout the US for mastering the unique "slap bass" style. Al Lemery shines bright under any stage light.
