TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH!
Yes, indeed, you have a great opportunity to catch Rusty and Peter performing a
rarely-seen act at the swankiest joint in Los Angeles -- Maxwell's At The Argyle!
This coming TUESDAY (not the usual Monday night, mind you...) Maxwell DeMille is
opening his venue to help celebrate the 40th birthday of one of Southern
California's most beloved swing scene icons: Mr. Dean Mora, leader of that
unparalleled dance orchestra, Mora's Modern Rhythmists! Loads of local swing
celebrities will be on hand to give performances and tributes to this great man of
music, and Rusty and Peter will be among those present!

Rusty and Peter will be performing a song-and-tap dance number to the Bill Elliott
song, "Swing Fever" with none other than Mr. Bill Elliott himself providing the
piano accompaniment! Rusty and Peter have only performed this number ONCE
before, nearly two years ago, so this is a great chance to see them doing a fresh
routine!!! Lively singing and great tap dancing from Rusty and Peter with the
incredible Bill Elliott on the keys...what more could you ask for?

*Wondering what the heck a "gate" is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast).
