Swing Madness Deluxe Edition
Friday 27th of May in Ghent
Polish up your dancing shoes and get ready to swing it hard like a mad Jitterbug! We’ll have one of the hottest bands from New York to play for you; “Professor Cunningham and his Old School’! But that ain’t all, we added a second hot band to the lineup, “Reverent Juke”! Yeah, that is why we call this a deluxe edition! You will get more than 4 hours of steaming live swing and blues music and on top of that we’ll have a taster dance class and dj contest..
Live band: Professor Cunningham and his Old School
Take a growling horn section, a grooving rhythm section and an energetic front-man. Mix in the soul of a New Orleans party and the elegance of the New York Club style, and you’ve got “Professor Cunningham and his Old School”. This Big Apple based band performs the most swinging and grooving repertoire deeply rooted in the traditional jazz style. Think Sidney Bechet, Fats Waller and Fats Domino!
Live band: Reverent Juke
Born from the bond between dancers and musicians, Reverent Juke plays songs from the origins of Jazz. Jelly Roll Mortons early jazz, Duke Ellingtons beauty, Louis Armstrongs recognizable melodies and Chick Webbs power. Reverent Juke will make you swing till the wee early hours! You might remember them from the last Crazy Legs new years party, where they played an amazing ‘first’ gig.
