Dedicated to the performance of America’s greatest popular standards, SWINGTIME BIG BAND is a 20-piece authentic swing band comprised of master interpreters of music from the Swing Era (mid-1930’s through early 1950’s). The ensemble specializes in performing original arrangements of Big Band classics from the Great American Songbook, bringing to life both the style and the spirit of this music for 21st century audiences to experience in living color.

SWINGTIME thrills concert audiences and Ballroom dancers alike with authentic recreations of the timeless swing music of such great Big Band leaders as Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Woody Herman, Les Brown, Charlie Barnet and Stan Kenton, among many others.

With the recent renaissance in popularity of both swing music and ballroom dancing, this versatile ensemble has been enjoying remarkable success playing both the swing music that is its calling card, as well as a wide variety of tunes to accommodate the many varied styles requested by ballroom dancersThe Lindy, Fox Trot, Peabody, Cha-Cha, Tango, Merengue, Rhumba and Mambo, among others. Highlights of the many prestigious venues at which SWINGTIME members have performed include: Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing, Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, the Plaza Hotel, the Waldorf Astoria, Tavern on the Green and the Rainbow Room.

Band: Isotope Stompers Dixieland Jazz Band

The Isotope Stompers are an exhilarating seven-piece Dixieland Jazz Band whose roots are in the Northeastern United States. This music, however, comes from way down South in New Orleans where this foot-stomping music called “jazz” grew out of spirituals and marches of the Bourbon Street area. You will recognize some of the band’s popular Dixieland tunes like the rousing Tiger Rag, In the Mood, Figgity Feet, Kid’s Ory’s famous Muskrat Ramble, A train, the sad and moving St. James Infirmary Blues or The Tin Roof Blues.

The emphasis is on what is known as “revival jazz”, the traditional New Orleans-style music spiced up with greater drive and tempo for dancing.

They will have you clapping your hands and tapping your toes…for THE ISOTOPE STOMPERS celebrate Mardi Gras, New Orleans style, all year long!  image
