"...Who says Swing is dead? Check out this video of a flash mob dancing to Swing at the Denver Airport....".

 

I love that video. I have searched, for some time, on flash mobs in general. There have been some really good video's, with all sorts of music. Anyone interested in flash mob music should 'google' it and see what is out there.

@MaVolta Oh man! Glenn Miller! We listened to so much of his music as kids! I really love swing  & big band music. Adore the dancing gramdma video, too! Rawr! Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for posting both of these. Smiley Happy
