Music in the Cafe Survivors Swing Band
Thursday June 15, 2017
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Remember when you listened, sang, and danced to the great old tunes of the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940's? Join us in the Café for a fun time as the “Survivors Swing Band” revive those memories for you and get your toes a-tapping and fingers snapping those recognizable tunes.
The “Survivors Swing Band”, a 7-piece professional jazz band, generates energy and excitement everywhere they perform. Together since 2011 “Survivors” has been playing the classic melodies, hot tunes and soothing ballads of the Swing Era, plus many of the wonderful melodies through the 50’s, throughout Connecticut. The Big Bands played this music with a high degree of rigid orchestration. The “Survivors” render it with a tilt towards improvisation, thus giving each pass at a tune somewhat of a new flavor while still keeping true to the original melodies. Your memories of the "good old tunes" you hear will be readily revived! With trumpet, Saxes, piano, guitar, bass, and drums, let the “Survivors” entertain you!
