Swing Lyons

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.

Mentis Swing

One chilly winter sunday noon there were 6 talented young jazz musicians, 10 swing dance addicts and 1 crate of local Bavarian beer, thrown into a cozy living room. No one knows what exactly happened there but after some shakin’, swinging and a lot of jamming all of a sudden MENTIS SWING was born. 
Since then the sextet turns their mission into reality and travels through Munich bars and dance floors to live what they believe in: music and dance are ONE.
