My wife and I lived in Salt Lake City several years ago, but we now live in Illinois. Even though we live several states away, we always make it a point to come to Salt Lake City each year for a visit. Each time we visit, a highlight of our stay is the Tuesday night Big Band Swing Dance concerts that are part of the Excellence Concert Series at the Gallivan Center. The venue is great, the bands are excellent, and the 7:30 p.m. starting time is perfect for us.

We would like to thank all those involved in the planning the concert series, along with the generous donors who make the concerts possible. This concert concept is a true feather in the cap for the city of Salt Lake.
