The Swing Lyons play danceable swing music in Gypsy Style – in the Munich tradition of the first US Army jazz clubs after 1945 and the swing music of AFN Bayern, which broadcasted this sound daily under the motto ”Bouncing in Bavaria”. The Swing Lyons manage to transport the freshness and joy of the wildest dance music from this era. The band has been around for eight years, consisting of Münchner and French people from Lyon who were stranded on the Isar.
Guitars, bass, drums, violin, saxophone and vocals, swing, blues and jazz from the 20s to 50s.
The versatile Munich Big Band, the Green Ties Jazz Orchestra under the Direction of Musical Director and Lead Alto Sax Player Stefan Eger, has started to develop a dance program for Lindy Hop dancers. The spark jumps from the musicians to the dancers and also from the Dancers back to the musicians. The 17 girls and guys of the band let the walls wobble and the feet of the dancers fly !!! Swing Swing Swing !! The Green Ties Jazz Orchestra is the hottest ballroom big band in town and will play for us on Friday evening at the “Onstage” of the Swing and the city dancing school.
The other bavarian band that will play at the “Bouncing in Bavaria” will be announced soon. Stay excited!
