Remember when you listened, sang, and danced to the great old tunes of the 1920’s through 1940’s? Has it been a while? Let the Survivors Swing Band revive those memories for you and get your toes a-tappin’ and fingers snappin’ in the process!  Do you want to dance, too?  Get up and go for it!

The Survivors Swing Band generates energy and excitement everywhere they perform. They are a 7-piece professional jazz band, based in Connecticut, that plays the classic melodies from an era gone by–hot tunes and soothing ballads of the Swing Era–plus many of the wonderful melodies from the two decades that followed. The “Big Bands” played this music with a high degree of rigid orchestration. The Survivors render it with a greater tilt towards improvisation, thus giving each pass at a tune somewhat of a new flavor while still keeping true to the original melodies. Your memories of the “good old good ones” that they play will be readily revived! With trumpet, saxes, piano, guitar, bass, and drums, let them entertain you!

Please register.
