Electro Swing dance band Swing Zazou collide vintage 30’s & 40’s big band and Gypsy Swing with live-mixed beats - a foot-stomping recipe of soaring hot-swingin' licks, driving swing-scat vocals, and vintage harmonies that creates the fully-charged and irresistible sound of live Electro Swing.
Expect to hear a kicking up-tempo live show with a full clarinet-led live band of trumpet, violin, helicon, guitar, double-bass, drums and live-mixed beats... A driving toe-tapping vintage Swing sound dragged through the decades and into the new Swing Club scene.
From the original Electro Swing tunes to covers of back-in-the day classics such as It Ain't Right, Don't Fall Asleep and Diga Diga Doo, Swing Zazou creates a modern Swing party to wear out the soles of your spats!
Swing Zazou have performed live on the BBC Radio 1 as part of the Rob da Bank Electro Swing Special.
