Compaq Big Band
Looking for something to warm up the too-long New England winter for Valentine's Day? We’ve got just the ticket! The Compaq Big Band is "Puttin’ on The Rex", New Hampshire's most stylish Valentine's dance event. On Saturday February 15th we'll be at the recently renovated The Rex Theatre at 23 Amherst Street in the heart of downtown Manchester, New Hampshire - The Palace Theatre's new, hip 'little brother'.
The show runs 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM with Doors Open at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $29 per person, and all seating is General Admission. We encourage purchasing tickets in advance by going to www.palacetheatre.org, calling The Palace Theatre at (603) 668-5588, or stopping by the Palace Theatre Box Office at 80 Hanover Street. Walk-ins welcome as space permits.
On the Rex's main level will be a dance floor surrounded by cabaret table seating, and there will be plenty of additional seats in the balcony for listening. Dress up if you like or just be comfortably casual. Catch an early dinner at one of the fabulous Manch Vegas restaurants within just a couple blocks' radius, and there's inexpensive on-street and municipal garage parking. Cash bar available before and during the dance.
Talented jazz vocalist Renee Dupuis will be out front channel' Ella Fitzgerald, Diane Schuur, Natalie Cole, and other great singers. We'll be doing a lot of swing classics, but we'll also program some tunes for ballroom dancers, as well, mixing in a waltz, cha-cha, mambo, foxtrot (of course), some slow ballads, and more.
