This Valentine’s Day, treat you and your special someone to an amazing night! We are so excited that the New London Big Band was on board to do a night of romantic standards and signature swing tunes. We’ll have a special Valentine’s Day dinner menu (which includes a complimentary hors d’oeuvres table) and two sets by the big band, who will be joined by outstanding vocalist Megan Weikleenget!
** THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL SHOW! It is not part of the New London Big Band’s monthly series. If you’ve never seen them, this is your chance! Their regular monthly shows sell out quickly, so take advantage of this special event! Tickets do not include food and beverage.
