Chinese Historical Society of America honors San Francisco Chinatown Dance Bands of the 1930's-1970's at the Dancing on the Roof Gala on October 16 at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco.

The Chinese Historical Society of America's (CHSA) Dancing on the Roof Gala , co-hosted by our very own Ben Fong-Torres at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco on October 16th, is the place to be for an elegant evening of dinner and dancing.

This year, CHSA celebrates the San Francisco Chinatown dance bands of the 1930s-1970s: Abacus, Cathayans, Chinatown Knights, Enchanters, Illusions, Intrigues, Jest Jammin, Majestic Sounds, Persuasion/Sand/City Lights/CP Salt/Earwaves and Soundcasters. The silent auction and musical performances by the Chinese American Bandstand with Jest Jammin, Expo and Intrigue are some of the highlights of the evening.

Founded in 1963, the Chinese Historical Society of America is dedicated to promoting the history of Chinese in America through exhibitions, education, public programs, publications, and research. Proceeds from the gala benefit CHSAs programs and will cover the costs for repairing the roof of the CHSA Museum and Learning Center, housed in the historic Chinatown YWCA designed by famed architect Julia Morgan.
