This is a full-on big band lead by “Sticks” Wilson on the trap set. Classic, energetic, steady and powerful right through the end of the night. All the classics from the Big-Band-Era and a clean, driving sound.

Deborah Stafford is excellent with vocal emanations that rouse and satisfy. Expect some cross-over from other dance circles, and do the Shim-Sham with Tuxedo Junction in the second set.

This is a band you can depend upon for great music for swing dancing. They have been playing the Dickens Opera House, and have begun other interesting shows along the Front Range.

A most favored swing orchestra at the Avalon Ballroom. I’m excited about this next appearance of this orchestra on the big Avalon stage, with our grand piano and excellent audio. Please join us!

Work Parties
