Dj Björn at Cats Corner

There are just a couple of weeks left of indoor dancing at Cats' Corner. Yesterday DJ Björn made his dj debut at Cats Corner. Great music all evening and lots of nice people to dance with. I even squeezed in a little bit of foxtrot and blues between all the lindy and balboa.

I've been busy at Cats' Corner this season and have been djing four five times. Now it's nice to have a little break.

Natalie Migdal - Live at Grand

What does it look like when Swingkatten has one of its swing dance nights at Grand? Here is a peek from the season finale the 8th of May when the Natalie Migdal Kvintett visited us.

The video is taken by our trusted sound guy, Olle Svensson, who also mixed the sound for the video.

Mr Kelly - Sarah Dawn Finer & Putte Wickman

A friend of mine, Miss L, recently performed the song, Mr Kelly, so I looked for other versions of it online and found this one sung by Sarah Dawn Finer and you can also spot Putte Wickman playing clarinet.

This fits perfectly into my mood as I prepare for a blues dance workshop in Stockholm this weekend. I don't know if I would dance blues to this song but I like the blue feeling it has.

One thing that surprised me was that Mr Kelly was written by a local musician here in Uppsala: Owe Thörnqvist. He is mostly known for other kinds of musical styles, so this was a nice surpice.
