Swing Shift is an eighteen-piece jazz big band designed to deliver a marvelous, memorable and fun musical experience. When was the last time you heard a full scale big band belting out swing tunes and the classics of the American songbook? We’re talking bands like Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, and Duke Ellington, singers like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Bobby Darin, songwriters like George and Ira Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and Richard Rodgers. And not just oldies because Swing Shift plays newer songs that reach out and grab you as well. Trumpets blasting, saxes, bones, full rhythm section and a vocalist. Eighteen musicians delivering a mountain of music.
