SWING46, New York’s Best Jazz Supper Club, Excited to Partner with New Broadway Musical
BANDSTAND
During 20th Anniversary Celebration

New York, NY  (5/14/17) — For 20 years, big band fans have counted on SWING46 to present live jazz music for dining and dancing nightly. But now you can see swingin’ big bands every night of the week on TWO stages in the historic Times Square neighborhood.
 
That’s because the new hit Broadway musical
BANDSTAND — now playing at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater — is a swing-fueled, against-all-odds story of jazz singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his big band: All WWII vets home from the war and looking to make new lives for themselves as musicians in postwar America.
 
Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award® winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), the show stars two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), this exciting instant classic has found a natural partner in SWING46.
 
“BANDSTAND is a brand-new musical on Broadway that takes place in 1945. SWING46 has been the pre-eminent jazz and swing supper club in New York for 20 years. Both our club and the show bring both historic awareness and modern freshness — and we both are committed to bringing swing music and culture to audiences and tourists here in New York,” said club owner John Ahktar.
 
“It was an obvious and easy move to have SWING46 host a nightly ‘afterparty’ of sorts for BANDSTAND attendees,” said SWING46 Promotions Director George Gee, who also leads his eponymous Orchestra from the club’s stage at least twice a week.
 
Theater patrons are invited to come to the club after the show, present your BANDSTAND ticket stub or email receipt, and get a discounted cover charge that same day (FREE cover Sun-Thurs or 50% off on Fridays and Saturdays).
 
But really, every night is a party at SWING46 Jazz Supper Club — especially during the club’s 20th anniversary celebrations … a month of celebration SO big they need five weeks to fit it all in!
 
During its anniversary “month” May 26 – June 30, SWING46 will present favorite acts every night, including the George Gee Swing Orchestra, Swingadelic, the Stan Rubin SwingEra Big Band and the Ron Sunshine Orchestra. Check out
our calendar for full details!
 
Get there early for a beginner dance lesson every night, with instruction by the club’s own teachers or from the club’s official dance studio partner,
You Should Be Dancing…!
 
In addition to serving up great music, SWING46 is frequently lauded (and Zagat-rated!) for its
fine Modern American cuisine. Guests can choose to dine in the showroom, in the bar, or even out on the recessed streetside patio when the weather suits.
 
This intimate and elegant atmosphere is found mere steps away from Times Square and Broadway’s theaters, right in the heart of Manhattan, at 349 West 46th Street.
