Hickory Music Factory’s annual "Swingin’ Under the Stars" will be held in Downtown Hickory at the "Sails on the Square" on Sunday, May 29th from 6:30-9:30pm. This FREE OUTDOOR event features the Hickory Jazz Orchestra under the leadership of founder Rick Cline. The big band will perform classic 1940s era big band arrangements from the great American songbook. “Swingin’ Under the Stars” is presented by the City of Hickory and hosted by the Hickory Music Factory. Hickory's “Swinging' Under the Stars” was the 2009 winner of the "Best Outdoor Event for NC". In addition to the swing music and dancing, the Hickory Music Factory will pay tribute throughout the evening to members of the community; those who have made a difference in the community through music. There will be a vendor selling kettle corn and drinks, so put on your dancing shoes or bring a chair and relax and enjoy the show!
