Uptown Swing Dance
Uptown Swing is excited to welcome Shawn Hershey, Josh Fialkoff & The Fried Bananas to our March dance! Shawn first created the Fried Bananas back in his Boston days and we had some great nights dancing to them. Josh also played for us with his own previous band. Now these two have teamed up with a whole new group. They played at the last Montréal DanceFest and had the place swingin’ hard and we’ve been trying ever since to get them back to Boston!
The brand-new Solomon Douglas Heptet is a tight-swinging little band that plays music inspired by the great later swing small groups and early modernists of the late 1940s. This New York City-based group was founded in September of 2014 by Toronto-born pianist and composer Solomon Douglas, whose various bands have played at hundreds of swing dance and music festivals in North America, Asia, and Australia in the past 15 years. You’ll hear and feel the evidence of his experience as a swing dancer and dance instructor in the deeply swinging groove of his music.
Professor Cunningham is one of the most in demand Lindy bands in the New York scene. Having been together since 2012. Woodwind virtuoso Adrian Cunningham and his 5 piece band performs the most swinging repertoire in the New Orleans tradition—from Sidney Bechet, to Fats Waller, to Fats Domino!
