We have the exciting opportunity this week to bring in Alex Yan as a DJ for Friday Night Stomp! Alex has been DJing swing music for nine years, all over the place, and brings to the booth an extensive knowledge of the music borne from his unique background in researching swing-era videos. You may also have heard of him as the founder and host of the Jazz Dance Film Festival in Seattle every summer (http://www.jazzdancefilmfest.com/).
We are SUPER excited to have Alex back at ESS! See you Friday!
