Very Special Thanks to Main Gate Square, KXCI and Jonas Hunter Productions for making it all happen so we could play in spite of Hurricane Hillary.

A sincere "Thank You!" 

Wholly Cats Swing Club would like to send out a sincere "Thank You!" to everyone who attended our first ever CD Release Event at Hotel Congress last Saturday. 

We had a record turnout and we were so thrilled to see so many dancers out there for Every.....Single.....Tune! 

It was so great to be sharing that musical energy with you all. 

A very special shout out to the Arizona Swing Cats who brought their wonderful parquet dance, floor, turned out en masse, and led a very popular Beginner Swing Dance Lesson at the intermission. Judging by the number of dancers during the second set, I think we have a whole lot of new Swing Dancers in the ranks now.... 

Another special thank you to all of you who purchased CD's at the event. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making it. 

For those of you who still want to purchase a copy, we will bring physical CD's to our future gigs. If you would like to purchase a Digital Copy for only $12.99, you can CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW AND PURCHASE A COPY. 

Thanks again to all of you who made the evening such a great success...

Our Century Room Debut: A Big Thank You 

Thank you to everyone who came out to hear us last Saturday Night, June 4, 2022 as we made our debut at the fabulous new Century Room at The Hotel Congress in Tucson, AZ. We were thrilled to have a full room at for each of our two sets and appreciate the love and support that everyone showed for our performance.

Once again, The Arizona Swing Cats came out and engaged in some "non-sanctioned" swing dancing in the aisles. It's always great to have dancers respond to our music and we want to thank the Swing Cats, in particular, for the support they have brought to all of our live dance events since we started performing in October 2021.

We will be taking some time off this summer as we attend to some personal business as well as prepared for the release of our new CD in the Fall. We will keep you posted as the release date draws near!
