A Swingin' Anniversary

Posted By on Fri, May 28, 2010 at 2:00 PM

Um, swing on in!
  • Um, swing on in!

You could drive right by the House of Swing and never notice this modest storefront.

But inside is a repository of jazz history — the memorabilia covering the walls and the 15,000-album collection that belonged to the late Lou Kallie, who started the club 33 years ago.

Kallie died in 1995, but his wife Linda has kept the doors open, with a mixture of DJs spinning those records and live bands playing mostly blues.

The club will celebrate its anniversary tomorrow night with guitarist Alan Greene, a mainstay of both the club and the local blues scene.

Music runs from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. —Anastasia Pantsios
