FALTY & THE DEFECTS

Falty & the Defects like to play, good old fashioned, hard swinging jazz and blues for ass shaking audiences. Falty & the Defects play everything, from sultry and slow to energetic and silly. They have a way of getting people to start to tap their foot or to shake uncontrollably. They have an infectious energy that spreads from the stage to the audience from the first downbeat. They are first and foremost a dance band, but listening audiences will be drawn in by their instrumentation, dynamics, and musicality. http://www.falty.com/about-c4yw



DJ PAUL LOSCHAK (aka DJ LOVESHACK)

Paul Loschak (known as "DJ Loveschak" at some of the weekly Boston dances) has been dancing lindy and blues since 2009. He made his DJ debut at the MIT Lindy Hop Society in 2011, and he has been working hard to hone his craft ever since. Paul calls on the talents of the best artists from the swing era and authentic swing jazz bands that are currently active today (with current favorites Chick Webb, Andy Kirk, Mezz Mezzrow, and The Boilermaker Jazz Band). Whether it's your first night swinging out or you're a seasoned lindy hopping pro, with Paul in the DJ booth you can expect to find exuberance, playfulness, and expression in your dancing.
