Swing Dancing Every Friday Night

Only $10 on DJ Nights and $12 - $15 on Live Band Night for Lesson and Dancing

Friday is the night for swing dancing in Sacramento! Held in our beautiful new dance studio the Spotlight Ballroom. Each week people of all ages and walks of life dance the night away to best Swing, Jazz, and Blues music in Sacramento. You'll even catch live music once or twice a month ($12 - $15 cover charge depending on the band) featuring the bands from around the world.

Some of the musicians in the bands we bring in have played with such legends as Keely Smith, Etta James, Chick Corea, John Lee Hooker Jr., Charles Brown, and many more. Our DJ nights ($10 cover charge) feature a wide variety of music that includes something for everyone. Song requests are always welcome, just talk to our DJ!

You never need a partner because our dances are extremely social and you're sure to make great friends at Midtown Stomp. The dance runs from 9:00 pm to 12:00 am and there is an introductory lesson at 8:00 pm which is included in your cover charge. We also offer Group Swing Dance Classes for those who want to take their dancing to another level. Come out and join us every Friday night!

Upcoming Dances

June 23rd - Hot City - $12

A few years ago Hot City quickly became one of our favorite bands to dance to. Zack Sapurnor's amazing repertoire of music will delight you. Using top notch musicians and an amazingly fun song book this band is swinging hard. Even they play slow they'll make you want to get out on the dance floor and boogie!

June 30th - DJ'd Dancing - $10

We love live music but sometimes a good old DJ night can make for an incredible night. Our DJ's will spin your favorite Swing, Jazz, and Jump Blues for your dancing pleasure. Your requests are always welcome so just ask your friendly DJ for the songs that you love to swing dance to.

July 7th - DJ'd Dancing - $10

You spin me right round, right round like a record baby! Our DJ's are spinning amazing Swing, Jazz, and Jump Blues for you to dance to.

July 14th - Stompy Jones - $15

Ah, Stompy Jones. With out this great band we wouldn't have live music at Midtown Stomp. That's a story for another time though. Stompy Jones has played all over the place for dancers, festivals, and for anyone who likes great music. They are also regulars at Disneyland. Their Jump Blues style of music is a throw back to 40s and 50s when people were partner dancing as a regular social activity. Little Davis Rose and the boys are incredible and you'll be dancing till your feet are sore!

July 21st - DJ'd Dancing - $10

Get out onto the floor as our DJ's give you the best Swing music!

July 28th - Hot Baked Goods - $15

Who knows the music dancers want to get down to better than a fellow dancer! Ryan Calloway has traveled around the world teaching dance and has had some critically acclaimed routines in the Showcase Division at the International Lindy Hop Championships. He also happens to be a great clarinet player living in the Bay Area and leads an amazing band that get your feet stomping and drive you out to the dance floor.

August 4th - DJ'd Dancing - $10

Dance up a storm with Sacramento's best swing DJs!

August 11th - The Au Brothers - $12

The Au's are an amazing family. We'd venture to call them the first family of Sacramento Swing music. Often you get to hear Brandon and Justin play with various bands that take our stage as well as their own band the West End Stompers. Less often do we get to hear oldest brother Gordon on our stage as he lives in New York City playing music for lucky locals and tourists. He's also a regular on the bandstand at East Coast swing dancing events. When Gordon is in town we get the Au Brother's Jazz Band which is simply magical.

August 18th - Cocuzzi Courtet - $12

The Cocuzzi Courtet will be taking the stage on May 6th for their debut performance at Midtown Stomp. Don't be fooled though, leader John Cocuzzi has been playing the Midtown Stomp stage since our days at the YWCA twelve years ago when he took the stage with the Fulton Street Jazz Band. He's also pounded the 88s with Stompy Jones and has traveled the world playing early jazz and swing music. The band also includes Kristy Cocuzzi. She is simply awesome on the saxophone, has played with Big Tiny Little and toured the country playing with some incredible names in jazz!
