We’re hosting one of the UK’s top performers on the dancing scene at this live band night in Portsmouth. You’ll have seen Si Cranstoun being interviewed on TV, headlining festivals and enjoying mainstream Radio 2 airplay with his debut single “Caught In The Moonlight”. Exciting!

Incredibly popular on his one previous engagement with The Swing Dance Company at the same Portsmouth venue back in 2011, Si Cranstoun returns to a venue that has seen the very best performers in the jive and swing scene, comparing comfortably with The Jive Aces, Mike Sanchez and The Swing Commanders in previous years.
