First Monday Music with Balboa, Blues & Booze

Balboa, Blues & Booze combines live jazz and blues music with a social dance party! The Observatory at Smith Tower is home to this fun and lively event the first Monday of every month. Be swept back in time with Balboa and Slow Drag Blues. Don't know how to dance Balboa or Blues? We still want you to get down on the dance floor. If you feel so inspired, come in your best 1930s/40s attire, or simply throw on your Friday threads and dancin' shoes.
