Beantown Swing Orchestra

The 18-piece Beantown Swing Orchestra specializes in performing big band dance charts from the Swing Era, all transcribed from the original vintage recordings by trumpeter Danny Fratina. Some of their favorite arrangers include Fletcher Henderson and Sy Oliver, whose work was performed by Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, and Jimmie Lunceford. With most of its musicians in their twenties, Beantown Swing Orchestra is a true representation of the young and energetic big bands of the 1930s.

What a special treat to have this wonderful big band back at Uptown Swing!

In addition to a fabulous night dancing to the Beantown Swing Orchestra, also featured will be a performance with the Lil’ Rhody Hoppers from Providence Swings!

Admission: $18 ($14 with Student ID)
