LAWRENCEVILLE — Grab your partner by the hand for Swing Night at Aurora Theatre’s “My Jazzy Valentine” concert at 8 p.m. Saturday.

This special edition of the popular concert series will feature the Metro Jazz Club, a 17-piece band performing an array of songs designed to get couples swinging with their sweetie for Valentine’s Day. The hostess for the evening will be Aurora Theatre Associate Producer Ann-Carol Pence.

Dedicated to the preservation of some of the best music ever composed, Metro Jazz Club is led by jazz sax man Gary Dalton. Metro Jazz Club has two vocalists, velvety crooner Jason Joines and zesty diva Amanda Richards.

They will be joined by special guest vocalist Kylie Brown, who recently returned home after the national concert tour of “Ghost Brothers of Darkland County” by Stephen King and John Mellencamp with musical direction by T Bone Burnett. Brown will star in “The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown,” a regional premiere at Aurora Theatre in March. Also performing is powerhouse Ed Sneed (Five Guys Named Moe & Big River in concert, Aurora Theatre).

Take the evening’s romance to the next level by adding a Valentine’s bouquet from Huffs Flowers or a box of chocolate malt and peppermint almond candies from Nancy’s Candy & Spice when ordering tickets either by phone or online. Gifts will be waiting at the theater upon arrival.

A portion of the proceeds from the add-ons will go to Aurora Theatre.
