It’s time for the fair winds of March to bid us adieu.  We will end the month with another Swingology, our most eclectic night of music!  It’s a concept we have developed to explore the question, “What swings?”, a topic of considerable debate among DJs.
Depending on who’s spinning, you may get a blend of classic swing (Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong) with favorite soul artists (Betty LaVette, Stevie Wonder), or maybe the best of Neo-swing (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Lavay Smith) and great swing-era divas (Ruth Brown, Peggy Lee). There’s sure to be some fantastic jump blues and hot jazz in the mix too! The idea of Swingology is to explore some of these boundaries while keeping the mix strongly rooted in familiar artists and songs we love to hear. You can expect a night full of good, solid, swing dance music from every corner of the kingdom of Swing and one thing’s for sure, the music will be like the weather in New England: if you don’t like it, just wait 5 minutes and it will change.
Kellian Adams and Brian Pletcher are our teachers for the evening!
