Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band Headline the Edison Ballroom
The Edison Ballroom is once again proud to announce the return of its special, “SWING INTO AUTUMN” event,
featuring the legendary big band leader, Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band.
At the request of so many of our regular attendees, we have decided to host this special event on Friday, November 17th, 2017 — the Friday immediately preceding Thanksgiving. Please mark your calendars and make your reservations as soon as possible. This event is sure to sell out!
Joe’s brilliant big band sound is considered among the best ever. He has performed for such dignitaries as Hilary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, and Barbara Walters. In the past, Joe and his orchestra have performed regularly at The Rainbow Room, Tavern on the Green, Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, and for the past 10 years, right here at the Edison Ballroom. Joe’s New York Big Band is composed of a 16- piece orchestra as well as accompanying vocalists. Also featured at this event will be the romantic Latin sounds of Direct Latin Influence, also known as DLI.
Tickets for dinner and dancing are still only $150.00 per person, which include VIP seating, a sumptuous four course meal, all drinks, taxes and gratuities. Festivities now start at 7:30PM. Mezzanine seating tickets are also available at a price of $100.00 per person, which include all the above. This event ends at 12:30AM, with continuous dancing throughout.
Award-winning chef and former “Chopped” champion Mina Newman will provide an incredible meal for this special event. The meal will include choices of salad, appetizer, main course and dessert. In the past, appetizer options have included Pan Roasted Sea Scallops, Yellow Fin Tuna Tartar, and Butternut Squash Ravioli with Roasted Hazelnuts. Entrées have included choices such as Filet Mignon, served with Scalloped Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus, Roasted Chicken Breast with Potato Hash, and Pan Seared Salmon with Wild Rice Pilaf. Desserts are sure to be festive!
It is nearly impossible these days to find such a wonderful bargain at such a special and elegant setting. Thankfully, The Edison Ballroom has emerged as the new superstar in this arena, offering the finest food and atmosphere together with sophisticated, romantic Big Band style dancing.
