We go out dancing in NYC where there are bands who still swing every night of the week.
George Gee plays Swing 46 every Tuesday.

@l483260l  HI!

 

Mine is a musical family. Mom was a radio DJ; Dad was a radio DJ's friend. Smiley Happy Pretty much all of us kids grew up singing and playing publically (on stage and in the church choir). One sib is an accomplished violinist; all of the others play at least one musical instrument.

 

We were exposed to all stripes of music, and to this day there are really only a couple genres I don't much care for. Though I am a rocker at heart, I used to organize a regional fiddle contest. Smiley Happy

 

DH isn't a big band era swing fan, but he likes electro swing. Smiley Happy His musical taste continues to fascinate me. He's very precise about what music he likes. Me, I'm not a genre snob. I mean, I see bleed-over and similarities more than genre rules and custom.  I guess I'm a musical jailbreaker. Smiley Happy

yes, Swing; I cut my teeth on straight-ahead jazz(Coltrane, etc.)& then got into swing. When I 'discovered'  Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller & songs like "Sing, Sing, Sing"I discovered that my 60-something mother  loved it dearly.  Benny Goodman Orchestra played Dallas Starplex outdoor concert in the late 70's/early 80's & we went- a priceless memory. both mom & Goodman.  She used to sing "Fly me to theMoon" for me- my favorite. Swing? yes!!!  I  still have casette of al lthings of big band favorites. Now let's talk Coltrane, et al.
