“Every Monday night at the stroke of 8, bandleader Russ Wilson makes a little musical magic, rolling back the clock to a time when big bands ruled the radio, jukebox and dance floor. Wilson and his 10-piece Nouveau Passé Orchestra are hosting a weekly big band “swing session” and dance in the lower level of Solace restaurant at the corner of Haywood Street and Battery Park Avenue. “I was wanting to get my orchestra out there amongst the people of Asheville,” said Wilson, one of the city’s busiest and best-known musical personalities. “There is all kinds of music in Asheville, but except for the Asheville Jazz Orchestra, there was no big band music for dancing downtown.”
