The Dare County Arts Council will host Swing!, the latest in its series of annual fundraising events, on Saturday, Oct. 26 at Pirate’s Cove Pavilion in Manteo from 7 p.m. to midnight. Presented by TowneBank, Swing! will celebrate the golden age of the Big Bands, with décor, music and menus that harken back to the dancehall days of the Outer Banks of the 1940s.

            The evening will feature live entertainment by 504 Supreme and the Truetone Honeys. Making their Outer Banks debut, the energetic and enthusiastic musicians from 504 Supreme play all the Big Band hits of the 1930s and 1940s. 504 Supreme will also offer swing dance lessons to guests at the event.

            Guests are encouraged to embrace the theme and dress in their best golden age attire. Proceeds from Swing! benefit DCAC’s Power of Art program, which provides art instruction and experiences to groups with special challenges, including children and adults with developmental disabilities and adults with dementia. Tickets to Swing! are $125 per person and can be purchased at the DCAC Gallery in downtown Manteo or by calling DCAC at 252-473-5558. Guests and businesses may also reserve sponsored tables of eight beginning at $1,500.
