Saturday, Mar 7, 2015 • New Vintage Swing Band at SDLI Dance • SDLI

Posted by Tom on 03/04/2015 • Permalink


The New Vintage Swing Band, will be performing for us this evening.

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.

No partner is needed and beginners are always welcome. 

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.
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.

Band: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

Drums pound, feet tap, fingers snap.  A sultry voice begins to croon, and suddenly the horns make their entrance.  Man, these cats have got rhythm, and now the vintage-clad crowd is boogying with unharnessed glee.  Welcome to the swing scene, where the music, dance, and style of the 1940’s have been revived with a passion.  Welcome to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!

image

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy had led the international revival of the jump of the Big Band era, with a sound that is not just big and bad, but huge and awesome!  In the rich traditions of musical masters Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has jumped into the spotlight of the swing dance craze with a brassy, updated and upbeat style of jazz.

Their credits include performing as the halftime entertainment at the Super Bowl, Orange Bowl, The White House, Billboard Music Awards and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.  The group’s videos are routinely featured on MTV and VH1.  The band’s biggest break came when they were cast to be the musical focal point of the movie “Swingers”.  With a truly contagious sound, rhythm and lyrics that bring passion back into music, Big Band Voodoo Daddy will feed your soul.

Band: The Buzzards

image

From the Buzzards web site....

The Buzzards are a rockabilly band out of Long Island.

Besides inciting riotous mayhem and general debauchery (not to mention occasional nudity), the Buzzards have performed at every rockabilly hot spot, including the Rodeo Bar in Manhattan and the Blue Comet just outside of Philly.

They are the house band at the Bayou in Long Island and performed at the Gold Coast Casino in Las Vegas for the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend four years in a row. They were rewarded with a standing ovation each year.  They have performed at the Indy Rockabilly Rebel Weekend, the Heavey Rebel Weekender in North Carolina, and Rock n Rods in Philly.  They performed for the Rockabilly Hall of Fame many times, most notably at the 50th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s first sold out concert, in Memphis, TN. 

They are the band of choice to open for national acts and received outstanding praise for their performance with the great Scotty Moore. Scotty even came out to the diner with the Buzzards after the show.

The Buzzards’ CD, “The Grand Buffet,” is still available.
