Blue Dance is a compulsively danceable swing/R&B/blues band that has heated up dance floors for nearly a decade. Fronted by singer extraordinaire Sammy DiFranco, Blue Dance moves smoothly through classics by such luminaries as Duke Ellington, Elvis, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, The Manhattans, and more. A great wedding band, dance band, or party band, Blue Dance is most at home playing for swing dances in the Rochester area, dishing up just the right mixture of songs to keep the Lindy Hoppers, the Blues dancers, the Latin lovers, and both the East Coast and West Coast swingers happy. We even recently started doing Rock n Roll contra dances. Other members of the band include Ernesto LaBella, Mike Stutzman, Tom Henderson, and Eric Metzger, plus a top notch horn section for select gigs.
Moon Indigo, a hybrid band consisting of members of Blue Dance and Tempest, plays more great swing music for dancing.
