The George Gee Swing Orchestra Returns to the Suncoast Showroom this Independence Day

Bring your dancing shoes down to the Suncoast Showroom for the George Gee Swing Orchestra, featuring vocalists Hilary Gardner and John Dokes, for a one-night-only big band dance event on Friday, July 4.

Music by the George Gee Swing Orchestra elegantly balances genuine traditions with exhilarating modernism. This versatile ensemble performs everything from a sweet foxtrot ballad, to rock and soul party favorites and all-out rollickin’ roadhouse boogie.

Gee is considered the world’s only Chinese-American swing big bandleader, offering a unique cross-cultural perspective to audiences. The Orchestra played at Ozzy Osbourne’s 50th birthday party in Beverly Hills, and was the first modern-era swing band welcomed from the West to perform at a swing dance event in Japan. Additionally, Quincy Jones arranged for the band to perform for the Royal Family of Jordan.

Vocalist Dokes is an accomplished baritone, singing a mixture of blues, ballads, popular songs and jazz standards. Gardner possesses a love for the history of the big band, has distinct vocal chops and has proven to be a perfect foil during featured duets.

For one special night only, the Suncoast Showroom will feature dance floor space from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $15.95, plus tax and convenience fees and the event is general admission. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075, or visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
