Primo Cubano!

Our favorite hot, hot dance band from Portland returns to The Dance Hall!

Primo Cubano plays traditional Cuban dance music dating back to the

turn of the 20th Century. "Son" is the most popular style to come out of

Cuba and is the primary contributor to the blend of Latin styles today known

as Salsa. It was first a music of the country people and eventually migrated to

Havana, where it was urbanized and began to draw a wider audience.

HOT MUSIC ON A COLD NIGHT VALENTINE’S DANCE

featuring The New Legacy Swing Band

The New Legacy Swing Band was begun in the early 90s as

'The Little Swing Band'. The band has evolved into one of

Northern New England's most sought-after dance orchestras.


With the velvet quality of five saxophones, the brilliance of six

brass and one of the region's most experienced rhythm sections,

the New Legacy Swing Band recreates the great swing classic

sounds of the Big Band Era. Add to this the sultry voice of their

own 'jazz singer' and you've got the most versatile swing sound

on the seacoast.



Their extensive repertoire of over 600 songs is sure to accommodate even the most discriminating ballroom dancer. We play swing, dance, latin, polka, waltzes as well as those room-filling big band tunes that get your blood pumping!
