In a secret location men finely dressed in white tie and tails and women in beautiful evening dresses met and enjoyed cocktails, amazing food and perhaps wine too and as the evening progressed one thing lead to another and these couples, danced!
The secret location had a beautiful Steinway grand. Solo piano was featured during the cocktail hour then when dinner chimes sounded String Bass and Drums accompanied the Pianist as doors opened to a beautifully set dining room.
Elegant Music Jazz Trio
The trio struck up “The Way You Look Tonight” a song most notably made famous by Frank Sinatra. Couples entered the ballroom and “took a turn on the dance floor.”
Not ready to sit down just yet guests remained on the dance floor so the trio segued into “Beyond The Sea” a French song with English lyrics made famous by Bobby Darin. The trio took a break so that guests could be seated and the dinner service could begin. After dinner and much lively conversation dancing resumed.
Guided by perfect manners and a common purpose to have a good time everyone seemed to know what to do; men conducted themselves as gentlemen and women conducted themselves as ladies; everyone enjoyed the company of each other; another successful party!
There are private organizations and clubs that observe traditions such as dinner dances. Celebrating ideals of bygone days they meet simply to have a good time. Photography was not permitted.
