Fetch your felt fedora or clasp your classy cloche because the roaring twenties, swinging thirties and heroic forties have returned in the form of Mouthful O' Jam! We regularly organize events that celebrate the rip-roaringly riotous days of the Lindy Hop, the Charleston, the Shag, the Jitterbug, and Balboa dance styles by playing original 78 rpm swing recordings on vintage equipment to a mass of wayward wise-guys and lithe ladies of liesure.



 
Each event commences with a beginners swing dance class, so all can join in the untamed revelry that certainly follows.
