Event - Swingtime

Swingtime is a Cleveland; Ohio based authentic big band featuring five reeds (alto, tenor, baritone saxes, flute and clarinet), four trombones, four trumpets, rhythm section, and male vocalist. They feature the sounds of the 30’s to 50’s with classic arrangements from bands such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Stan Kenton, Woody Herman and Buddy Rich. They also play the newer sounds of contemporary artists like Michael Buble, Harry Connick, Brian Setzer, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.. Curtis Avant is the band's vocalist featuring the timeless songs of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Louis Jordan, and Joe Williams. Curtis also adds the contemporary styles of B. B. King, The Temptations, Four Tops, Barry Manilow, and Tom Jones. Many of Curtis’ arrangements come from the late award wining arranger for Mo-Town Records and Cleveland native, Willy Smith. Swingtime’s Musical Director is lead alto Ken Paynter, with an assist from drummer/arranger Ernie Molner. From Big Band Swing of the 40's to rockin' tunes from the 60's to the contemporary sounds of the 80's and 90's Swingtime will fill the bill. http://clevelandswingdancing.com/
