Dancing Under the Stars

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens brings back the sounds of jazz and swing for the second annual DANCING UNDER THE STARS on July 27, 2012. This chic and hip dance party takes place on the Great Meadow in front of the historic Manor House, and begins with free swing dance lessons at 7:30 pm. Then the evening kicks into high gear, with dancing to The Dave Banks Big Band from 8 to 11pm. Stan Hywet is located at 714 North Portage Path in Akron, Ohio. The Dave Banks Big Band is a powerhouse 17-piece swinging dance orchestra. Fronted by Dave Banks on trumpet, the band includes trumpeter John English; saxophonists Don Turoso, Bob Esterle and Dave Kana; trombonists Chas Baker and Scott Garlock; and drummer Mark Gonder. Featured vocalists have included Peggy Coyle, Shannon Eller, Marsha Newman, Michael Sonata, Barb Knight and Helen Welch. The band plays regionally and nationally and its repertoire ranges from original compositions to standard big band favorites.
