Style: Ballroom

Dance Instructor: Sandra Cameron teaches Foxtrot, Swing, and Rumba

DJ: Gene Eagle

For more than 20 years, trumpet player Joe Battaglia and his 16-piece big band have been playing fresh arrangements of everyone’s favorite rumba, foxtrot, cha cha, and other ballroom styles. Well known by dance lovers around town for his longstanding gigs at Tavern on the Green, the Rainbow Room, and the Edison Ballroom, this native New Yorker and his New York Big Band keep dancers gliding around the floor with a melodic sensibility that “showcases Battaglia’s lyrical and sweet sounding horn” (Cabaret Scenes).

“Joe leads one of the finest big bands in the country today. The quality of this band is reminiscent of the bands from the 30s and 40s.”
Jim Stone’s Big Band Swing, WLNZ
“Joe Battaglia & The New York Big Band continue the great tradition of swing and beautiful ballads, which spotlight his unique, and brilliant trumpet sound.”
– Joe Franklin, WOR Radio NY
