Band: Central Park Stompers

Since their debut in 1995, the Central Park Stompers have been thrilling audiences with their perfect blend of jazz and high-octane swing. Beginning at a club in Hartford, Connecticut to a crowd of more than four hundred lindy hoppers who remained on their feet the entire evening, it was clear that this was a band to watch. The Stompers quickly went on to perform at numerous swing dance clubs, including The Five Spot in Philadelphia, Roseland in Boston, and Swing 46 in New York City. They were asked to bring their infectious brand of swing to the closing ceremonies of the re-dedication of New York’s Grand Central Terminal, where they transformed the building into a huge swing dance club, with lindy hoppers and commuters screaming for more. The Stompers have been featured on “E” Television and on Fox 5’s “Good Day NY”, where they performed live at sunrise on Y2K in front of Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn to thousands of TV viewers. They have recorded two albums, “The Central Park Stompers” and “Bad Girl Shoes.” The Stompers continue to delight music lovers at colleges, museums, summer music festivals, as well as weddings and corporate events. A partial client list includes the Aldrich Museum, the Bethlehem Musikfest, the Corning Museum of Glass, Estee Lauder, Marymount College, Merchant’s House Museum, Princeton University, Fordham University, the Newark Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum.

Band: New Vintage Swing Band

Much like fine champagne, The New Vintage Orchestra bubbles with an unparalleled energy and charisma that is sure to keep dancers going all night. Formed by trumpeter Brian Lewis in August of 1992, the band puts forth an incredibly diverse range of musical talent.

Featured is female vocalist Doris Anne Lewis, singing the hits of Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole, Dianne Schure, and many other swing singers.

The bands “Frank Sinatra” crooner is Ron D’Abruzzo who adds his own special blend to the great American standards.

The swing scene’s resurgence in the late 90’s was undeniable. The New Vintage Orchestra reproduces 1930’s and 40’s sounds using original arrangements from Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, and Harry James, and with special arrangements written by Brian Lewis, the band belts out the sounds of popular dance chart-toppers. Not all of New Vintage’s charts are vintage, however! They also play the hits of Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

The band has backed up such names as The Temptations, Jerry Vale, Connie Francis, Al Martino , Frankie Valli, Bob Newhart and Joan Rivers. Few bands possess the ability to set a room in motion like The New Vintage Orchestra. From the opening downbeat to the last note, screaming brass, gritty saxes, and a strong rhythm section keep the audience jumping the whole night long.

“Standards Aged to Perfection”, The New Vintage Orchestra’s debut CD release, captures the incredible versatility of the group. The album’s eleven tracks include a wide range of classics from the 1930’s and 40’s. From a foot stomping rendition of Benny Goodman’s “Sing Sing Sing” to the silky smooth lyrical lines of Doris Anne Lewis in “And the Angels Sing”, to a rousing, jazzy finale of “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In”, the band is sure to entertain, and, like that bottle of bubbly, only gets better with time.
