From Discovery Dance:

Discovery Dance presents Tony Petrillo and the Roundabout Quintet, November 17 at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge. We begin the evening with a FREE dance lesson in Night Club 2-Step, taught by professional dance instructor Janice Eklund. After you’re warmed up, LIVE MUSIC begins at 8:00 p.m. New and seasoned dancers are welcome. No partner or previous dance experience is necessary to join in the fun.

Tony Petrillo is a scuba diver, oceanographer, industrial engineer, guitar player, and jazz singer. His singing is reminiscent of the crooners of the 40s. The music is smooth and jazzy in classic dance tradition; perfect for Foxtrot, Swing, Waltz and every song is a hit. Adding to Tony’s expert lead, Kurt Festinger, aka Professor Kurt, plays horns like none other, and adds his infectious rhythm to the bands energy.

George Radebaugh, keyboard extraordinaire, marathon runner and funny man is a mainstay. Tim Sheffel, long time expert drummer, plays percussion with crackerjack perfection, and Dirk Anderson keeps dancers hopping with his upright bass playing.

A free (with admission) lesson in Nightclub Two-Step will offered at 7:00 p.m. by professional dance instructor Janice Eklund. Experienced dancers are encouraged to come help beginners. Couples and singles are welcome. No partner or registration is necessary.

This is a smoke-free and scent-free dance open to all ages.

Admission: $12.
