Sunday With The Friends Welcome The Scimitars Swing Band

Sometimes when everything is at its very worst, the only reasonable thing to do is throw a big party. Headlines in the 30’s and 40’s were grim, but as Americans were slogging through the Great Depression and World War II, a killer diller dance party began sweeping the nation. The music behind the new craze was an up-tempo jazz called Swing.

The Scimitars Swing Band specializes in the music of the Big Band Era and is performing at Lakewood Public Library as part of our Sunday With The Friends program on Sunday, September 9, 2018. The party starts at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library Multipurpose Room.

The Scimitars Swing Band is part of the Al Koran Shrine band tradition that began in 1905. Cleveland’s Al Koran is the 4th oldest Shrine center in North America.

A number of these landmarks are highlighted in DeMarco’s book, "Lost Cleveland."
