This delightful funky trio bring you a vintage musical experience with the smooth and sassy sounds of a bygone but not forgotten era. They cover swing & jazz standards of the greats, modern songs with a swing twist and sometimes throw in a dash of soul, funk, blues or pop oldies. They can even end off with the foot stomping sounds of the DJ’s collection of electro-swing at your request. Their set can be tailored to suit your event.
