Born in Memphis and raised in Atlanta, vocalist Taryn Newborne is rooted deeply in the soil of a rich musical heritage. She has often said that she loves music so much, it hurts her feelings. After years of dancing in her local Lindy Hop scene, one of the major organizers suggested that Taryn put her own group together for dances. Taryn Newborne and The Real Deal was born. She’d finally found her home, situated between her love of singing and Lindy Hop. Since becoming a regular in her home scene, Taryn has had the opportunity to make numerous guest appearances, including with Jonathan Stout, Gordon Webster, Candy Jacket Jazz Band, Michael Gamble and The Rhythm Serenaders and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band All Stars. Comprised of some of the most sought after musicians in the world, Taryn Newborne and the Real Deal strive to swing as hard as possible.
Beantown Campers have enjoyed the pleasure of Taryn’s many appearances over several years. This will be Taryn’s 2nd time at Uptown Swing, and we’re excited to have her back to kick off the new season.
Guest DJ this month is TBA.
