Special to The Explorer

Candy may be dandy, but on Valentine's Day an even better way to get your sweetie in the mood is take her dancing.

The Sweetheart Valentine's Dance is presented by the Tucson Jazz Society at the J.W. Marriott Starr Pass Resort, 3800 W. Starr Pass Blvd., on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m.

Big Band Express is taking over the bandstand, 16 swinging musicians led by drummer/singer Tom Patrick, with "In the Mood" on their playlist. They've got the charts for all those other classic dance favorites from the big band era, as well.

The band's resume includes centerpiece gigs at the Oro Valley Jazz Festival, the Tubac Arts Festival, Tucson's own Silver & Turquoise Ball and many New Year's Eve blowouts at the Tucson Convention Center.

Standing out front is Crystal Stark, the bright-eyed singer known for her delivery of hits from the rock, blues and soul genres. She was one of the finalists in the fifth season of TV's "American Idol."

To get everyone started off on the right foot, Danzon School of Dance presents a swing dance demonstration and offer a free dance lesson at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $25 non-members, $20 TJS members, with seating at tables for 10. More intimate VIP tables for two are $125 general public, $100 for TJS members.
