Hey,

I've never listened to swing, really, but I recognized that I like that swingy/groovy music smile.gif
But I dont know any bands sad.gif

Could you recommend me some ? With guitar would be great, but it also would work without a guitar wink.gif

Hey Chast,

In the '90's there was a bit of a "swing revival" of sorts with bands like Cherry Poppin Daddies, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Brian Seltzer Orchestra, and Colin James. All pretty good bands to check out.

I'd also check out some of the "Big Band" guys too from the 30's and 40's like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Cab Calloway, Glenn Miller and Buddy Rich. All great smile.gif
