Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band Headline the Edison Ballroom Swing into Autumn on Friday, September 28th, 2012. The Edison Ballroom will once again host legendary big band leader, Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band. Having traveled the world performing with icons like Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, and Tony Bennett, Joe’s brilliant big band sound is considered among the best ever. He has performed for such dignitaries as Hilary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani, and Barbara Walters. For more than 10 years, Joe and his orchestra performed regularly at The Rainbow Room, Tavern on the Green, and Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, but this date represents his 3rd anniversary of his performing at the Edison Ballroom. Joe’s New York Big Band is composed of a 16- piece orchestra as well as accompanying vocalists. Also featured at this event will be the romantic Latin sounds of Direct Latin Influence, also known as DLI.
Tickets for dinner and dancing are $150.00 per person, which includes VIP seating, all food, drinks, and gratuities. Festivities start at 7:00 PM and end at 1:00 AM.
Tickets are also available for $100 per person, which includes MEZZANINE Seating, all food, drinks, and gratuities.
Award winning Chef Mina Newman will provide the 4-course menu, which includes appetizer options like Pan Roasted Sea Scallops, Yellowfin Tuna Tartar Napoleon, and Butternut Squash Ravioli with Roasted Hazelnuts.
Entrées include a Petit Filet, served with Scalloped Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus, Roasted Chicken Breast with Potato Hash, and Pan Seared Salmon with Wild Rice Pilaf.
With the recent closings of both Tavern on the Green and The Rainbow Room, finding a special setting for an elegant evening of dinner and dancing is not easy. Thankfully, The Edison Ballroom has emerged as the new superstar in this arena, offering the finest food, an elegant setting and sophisticated, romantic Big Band style dancing.
