21st Annual New Year's Eve Tango Bash- Dec. 31st

21st Annual

New Year's Eve

Black & White Tango Ball

 Live Music by Mermelada, The Seattle Tango Jam

Come enjoying an elegant evening of Argentine Tango.

Let's ring in the New Year together!

Mermelada (formerly The Seattle Tango Jam) started a few years ago as an opportunity for musicians to play tango music without the pressure of having to audition into a professional ensemble. Mermelada has grown from a nucleus of 4-6 musicians into a true tango orchestra of 10 musicians, and has graduated from informal jamming to playing professional arrangements. We strive to produce an authentic sound by copying the styles of the Golden Age orchestras.  Because most of us happen to also be dancers, we play the music as we would want to dance to it, with clear rhythms and lyrical melodies.
