swingin-the-gatsby-jazz-bandSwingin the Gatsby are a 1920s Gatsby Era Jazz Band

Swingin the Gatsby Jazz Band were initially formed to play a charity event called Swingin’ The Blues Away 2013, a swing dance event that raised money for mental health issuswingin-the-gatsby-corporate-jazz-band-melbournees in our community.
The focus then and now for Swingin the Gatsby is on playing the tunes of the Gatsby and Savoy Ballroom era, and to reimagine the jumpin’ vibe of this iconic dance hall era with a smaller and more portable ensemble.
Swingin the Gatsby arrangements are both drawn from original charts and also arranged by members of the group. The lush Swingin the Gatsby horn section and guitar that draws on early rock-n-roll forms provides a splash of individuality, and some red hot solos. Jennifer rounds off the sound with a timbre and delivery well matched to the era.

Swingin the Gatsby are guaranteed to get you on your feet and dancing with swing band tunes predominantly from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s Big Swing band Era
Swingin’ the Gatsby kicks out the dancing tunes with Lindy Hop in mind. You’ll hear songs that were performed by the likes of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Prima just to name a few.

The 4 piece rhythm section, and 3 piece horn section, together with Jen’s silky smooth vocals comprise this ‘little big-band’.
