About Us

While spending my career in broadcasting--radio and television--my avocation has been to form and operate a number of bands. I ran a swing band for 25 years, a combo doing old rock 'n roll, beach, and standards I've fronted for some 20 years. More recently, i updated the swing with 'Swing Set,' doing more current swing hits. I play lead sax and sing, and we have an excellent female vocalist and great instrumental players and soloists.

How We Got Started

I wanted to update the music I had been playing for decades, and with the popularity of Buble', Lady GaGa, Rod Stewart and many others renewing the 'vibe' of this music, I wanted to offer this music on the local scene. It has been a blast!

Our Ideal Customer

We do our share of weddings, fund-raisers, parties, and events, but my favorite is surprising the tourists--our version of the flash mob! I just love seeing the reaction of folks passing by to this great music and lots of folks dancing. It's a real 'kick in the head,' to quote Dean Martin (who would be 100 this year)
