Tuesday, Jan 20, 2015 • New Vintage Swing Band at SDLI Dance • SDLI

Posted by Tom on 02/10/2015 • Permalink


Need vintage clothes for the big USO dance?  You can browse and shop while your dance this evening.

image

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.

image

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

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.

A beginner East Coast lesson will be given at 7:30PM to get you on the floor. A few ballroom dances will be in the mix as well.
