Swing Session Big Band
Big Band Jazz is alive and doing quite well in the Puget Sound region with Jim Kerl's 16-piece group, Swing Session. This band features some of the best talent the area has to offer, and with featured vocalists Joey Jewell and Bethany Smith-Staelens, Swing Session is a swinging, exciting musical experience. The music of Swing Session mirrors the philosophy of its bandleader, Jim Kerl; accessible melodies that swing hard and leave the audience and band wanting more. To paraphrase the great Count Basie, "..it don't mean a thing if you can't pat your foot to it."
The Swingin' Sixties Band
The Swingin' Sixties Band is just that, a nine-piece swinging "Big Band" that plays the cool, swingin' tunes of the sixties. Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Tom Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson and more are all done with style and superb musicianship. With vocalists Joey Jewell and Bethany Smith-Staelens, this band is a fun, entertaining musical experience. Just add a martini to the mix and you can't miss!
