SwingIN is devoted to providing excellent live music for our event. This year, we’re proud of the amazing line-up of musicians bringing the joys of their craft for us to share and dance along with. Music is such an integral part of the Lindy Hop community, and we’re ecstatic for what’s on our line-up!
Friday & Saturday
The Russ Wilson Swingtet!
RUSS WILSON – Singer, Drummer, Conductor, Entrepreneur.
For 35 years Russ has worked as a professional musician and has made a name for himself playing many different styles of music including Jazz, Rock, Country, Gospel, Blues, R&B, pit work for Broadway style shows and Symphonic music. Of all these Jazz remains his first true love.
SwingIN has had the pleasure of Russ’ stylings for our live music in past years…which is exactly why we’ve brought him back! The Russ Wilson Swingtet is something we feel you simply MUST experience.
Moonshine Rhythm Club
Our Sunday evening dance is proud to have the one and only Moonshine Rhythm Club!
Moonshine Rhythm Club brings old-school swing and jazz to life with joyful arrangements and energetic playing that makes this vintage music sound like it was written this morning. The boys seek out deep cuts from the 30s and 40s, take their favorite parts from classic big band recordings, and distill them into their signature sound. That sound draws on the guitar-driven, acoustic fire of gypsy jazz, as well as the slow burn and laid-back groove of later artists like Count Basie and Nat “King” Cole. On top of this lays classy and hip vocals with a lighthearted humor.
