Remember when you listened, sang, and danced to the great old tunes of the 1920′s through 1940′s? Has it been a while? Come to the Meriden Public Library on Saturday, June 29 at 2:30 pm and let the Survivors Swing Band revive those memories for you.
A 7-piece professional jazz band, based in Connecticut, the Survivors Swing Band plays the classic melodies from an era gone by–hot tunes and soothing ballads of the Swing Era– plus many of the wonderful melodies from the two decades that followed. The “Big Bands” played this music with a high degree of rigid orchestration. The Survivors render it with a greater tilt towards improvisation, thus giving each pass at a tune somewhat of a new flavor while still keeping true to the original melodies. This program is free and all are welcome.
