SWING Out AT SD JAZZ FESt 2017

Info for 2018 Swing Extravaganza will be posted soon.

 

 

The 38th San Diego Jazz Fest will salute our friends in the Swing Dance community with a special "Swing Dance Extravaganza" on  Saturday night, Nov. 25, 2017 at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center.  Warm-up sets start at 3:15pm and there will be non-stop music from 8:15pm-12:30 am.  The featured bands will be Candy Jacket Jazz Band  (above right)  and the Jonathan Doyle Swingtet  (above left), plus there will be special demos with Joel Plys' Swing Dancing San Diego.  Both bands are renowned for playing perfect repertoires and perfect tempos for dancers, yet each band has a unique style and approach to Swing music.   Don't miss the "Battle of the Bands" between these two great groups and the Swing Dance Compitition with a $500 prize for the #1 couple.

  

Leading up to the Extravaganza, the Festival will present performances by four more bands that the dancers follow: Sue Palmer and her Motel Swing Orchestra (upper right) the Sweethearts of Swing with High Society (upper left), Kris Tokarski Quartet (lower left) and the Memphis Speed Kings (lower right).

Check out some photos from previous Swing Fests including Joel Plys and his SD Swing Dance Team.
