Speakeasy Electro Swing returns to the Waverley

Speakeasy Electro Swing is coming back at you in the Comox Valley once again.

With nights happening in 14 cities and seven countries worldwide, Speakeasy is one of the top purveyors of the Electro Swing and Vintage Remix scenes around.

DJ Eliazar had a great summer of shows including four packed nights at the Montreal Jazz Festival, and killing it at Rock the Block here in Cumberland amongst other adventures.

Dubtecha and Mikey Reggae are two of the founders of The Naked DJs and so many great events in these parts for the last decade. While Dubtecha brings it heavy on the bass side of the spectrum, Mikey brings along a smattering of more four-on-the-floor beats to keep your booties shaking.

“Last year, we started this night at the Waverley with mostly sold out shows full of folks dressing up to get down, and we want this vibe to grow even more in the coming year,” said Vig Schulman, of the Waverley Hotel. “With special guests, free swing dance lessons, and other random performances, we know the Speakeasy is ripe for you to enjoy a night of saucy fun.”

There will be prizes for the best dressed man and lady this round (four free tickets to the next round each), so go for broke in evoking the styles of the last great depression, because, after all, the roaring ’20s are only six years away.
