    Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM EST
    Event Description:

    The RHYTHM SOCIETY is a 15-piece dance band specializing in true vintage swing music. Their sound is heavily influenced by Count Basie and Harry James. Although based in Detroit, this band covers top venues throughout the Midwest and has been featured on numerous television and radio programs. 

    Crooner Paul King describes his style as "a mixture of Mel Torme, Joe Williams, and Frank Sinatra - with a dash of Cab Calloway thrown in". Detroit's Metro Times jokes "His voice has been banned in some nightclubs for inducing public displays of affection on the dance floor." 

    The Rhythm Society Orchestra has been featured at many of the Midwest's largest swing dance events including dance workshops with some of the world's top instructors. 

    The Rhythm Society was recently featured in a Michigan-made independent film, Forever in Time, directed by Chuck Grady. 

    "Backed by the solid, horn-heavy sounds of the swingin' Rhythm Society, handsome front man Paul King belts out the tunes in vintage suave style. In an instant, you'll be transported into the dance halls of the '30s and '40s, where a cool-suited cat grabs the hand of the nearest full-skirted honey and the dance-floor crowd parts to watch them take a manic dip and twirl." - Karen Fisher, METRO TIMES 

    "Irresistible big band sound - simply flawless" - Sarah Klein, METRO TIMES
