Swingin' Cinco Under the Golden Gate!

Fresh on the heels of an East Bay tour (yeah, that was humor), Hot Rod Jukebox returns to Sausalito's Travis Marina (aka Presidio Yacht Club) on Friday, May 5, 2017 with rock 'n roll, rockabilly, and rhythm 'n blues tailor-made for vintage swing dancing. The venue has a casual vibe, a real wooden dance floor, and breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Travis Marina Bar is often described as "a dive bar that's a well-kept secret." You'll find a community of swing dancers here, but other dancers (and non-dancers) are welcome too. Bring a dance partner, or meet one here -- the main thing is to have a great time and keep on rockin'! The venue is open to the public, and you'll find details for May 5 on the Calendar page. See you there!
