At the end of February 2020, we organized the first ball of the Reflex magazine in Prague’s Lucerna. Ondřej Havelka and his Melody Makers, Ondřej Brzobohatý and the Beatles Revival played more than a thousand participants at the time. Part of the event was the announcement of the Star of Reflex poll, in which we praise publicly lesser-known people for their extraordinary deeds.
A few days after the ball, however, the lockdown cage fell and we haven’t completely gotten out of it yet. So we had to cancel another ball in March 2021 and the stars of Reflex are still waiting for their award.
The question was what to do next. Resign completely to all events, or try to organize at least something in truncated conditions and thus contribute to the restoration of normal life, which includes public events?
We decided to go the second way and on August 5, 2021 in Prague’s Žofín, the center of the Renaissance balls of the 19th century, we will organize a swing garden party, again under the baton of Ondřej Havelka and his Melody Makers.
The event will start at 5 pm, when it will begin with a discussion between Milan Tesař and the stars of Reflex. At 7 pm, a three-hour concert by Ondřej Havelka, accompanied by a swing school, will begin. Other guests (Ivo Kahánek, Mirka Časarová) will also perform. Everything in the covered space of the Žofín Garden.
After 10 pm, an electroswing after party with DJ James Wing will begin in the Žofín Palace. The whole event will be accompanied by entertainer Petr Čtvrtníček and maybe a magician will come, or the moderator will announce the presidential candidacy.
The disadvantage of limited options is the limited capacity, which makes the Reflex Dance Hall a bit of a premium event. Therefore, there will be only 400 tickets on sale and their price will correspond to this. Even if the capacity is filled, the organizers will reach a large zero.
Even so, it makes sense to organize events of a similar type so that we realize what the world looked like before the Chinese virus arrived in the Czech Republic. Come before they forbid us everything again, and try with us how the First Republic dance halls worked.
If you don’t get tickets with you, Reflex will hold a ball in Lucerne again on March 8, 2022. Have fun.
