Take a ride with “Rumble Seat”, a 9-piece jump swing and traditional swing band. This is their third appearance at Boulder’s Avalon Ballroom! They were a big hit during their first two performance! Hugely energetic and very professional!

Led by saxophonist Byron Hamer and featuring Dave Gannon on vocals, the high-octane, toe-tappin' music of Rumble Seat will propel you on the dance floor.

Driving rhythms of tunes like "the Boys are Back in Town", "Pick Up the Phone", and "Boogie Man" make this presentation of American dance music a road trip through time. It's a top-down excursion through the optimistic eras of songwriting that we all love to dance and listen to. This music will make you smile!

These are nostalgic tunes that Rumble Seat performs with high compression ratio zeal. You'll be movin' and groovin' on the dance floor, shifting among swing and other couples dance numbers. The musicians ride into some sassy side-trips and sharp curves during every song.

Please join us for a fun filled evening of dance and music featuring “Rumble Seat”.
