Ivan is Ivan Whillock, who played brass instruments in his band, the Blue Notes, back in the day when today's oldies were new. Now he's switched to guitar and six years ago formed another band, the Kings of Swing, to play music that gets toes tapping and hands clapping.
Other members of the band, based in Faribault, Minn., include Mike Hildebrandt, a multi-instrumentalist and member of the Minnesota Rock/Country Music Hall of Fame; vocalist Dallas Musselman; bass player Ben Brian; and drummer Mark Whillock, son of Ivan Whillock.
Competitive-level swing dancers Devin and Kendra, of Northfield, Minn., will perform during the show.
Tickets are $16 in advance, $18 day of show. To reserve tickets, call 507-732-7616 or stop in to Crossings at 320 East Ave., Zumbrota. For more information, visit www.crossingsatcarnegie.com.
