What is Pocket Change Exchange (PCX)? In one word? It’s FUN! 4 nights and 2 days of straight-up social dancing fun, with a focus on great music, fun dancing and friendships. This year is the 9th year of PCX and as always, we are planning to make it the best one yet!!
For the first time we are bringing in an international band to give our dancers a taste of that magic of dancing to a world class band with oodles of experience playing for swing dancers – having played at most of Australia’s biggest swing dance events, we now have the pleasure of bringing Andrew Dickeson’s Blue Rhythm Band to Christchurch to play at Pocket Change Exchange! Check out a bio on them here.
Alongside the Blue Rhythm Band will be a selection of the best local swing bands – darn are we lucky in Christchurch to have some awesome bands in our arsenal!!
Dates this year are a little later than normal, specially to tie in with the Kiwi Lindy Exchange and all the keen dancers straight off the bus from a week of dancing, let’s show them what Christchurch and the Swingtown Rebels have to offer!
PCX will start Thursday night the 28th of November, and run through until a Sunday late night (really that means Monday morning!).
More details about the event are to come, but in the meantime, the dates are locked in, the band is locked in and the committee is committed to creating something awesome, so lock it in your diaries, if you’re from out of town book your tickets to Christchurch, and we’ll see you in November!!
