Playing Saturday 17th March 2018
We can’t wait to swing the night away to this amazing band. Palace Avenue Swing play the best in hot jazz, swing and blues from the 1930-40s, and take inspiration from the swinging small groups of this golden era such as the Count Basie Octet, Louis Armstrong All-Stars, Eddie Condon and Benny Goodman small combos – groups which were distilled down from their respective Big Bands to a rhythm section and a few key horn players out front with the sole purpose of keeping tapping. Palace Avenue are well known to dancers, and are already booked to appear at IsThereHop (Switzerland) and Swing Upon a Time (Italy) this year, with more UK and international dance events confirmed and soon to be announced!
Featuring the wonderful Cherise Adams-Burnett on vocals, and channeling the spirit of Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerlad and more, Palace Avenue Swing are guaranteed to fill the dance floor and swing out in style!
