We've had a great Spring with shows in Oakland, CA and Ottawa, Canada. Our next gig will be in August for The Uptown Swingout where we will be recording a LIVE for the first time! It's been a while since our sophomore effort "The Devils' Music" came out and we're ready and pumped for the next record to come out by the end of this year. Come be a part of the recording magic August 23rd and 24th in Naomi's hometown of Minneapolis.
We just concluded our first time playing in Indiana (we HAD to play that song on Saturday night) for Purdue University's Whistle Stop event, and now we look forward to our annual trip to Sweden to celebrate the new year at the Snowball. We haven't played Europe since the spring and we are looking forward to playing new tunes for old friends and fans. Vi ses!
We've had a short break since August in Minneapolis and now we're gearing up for our Fall tour to Budapest and London. We've very excited to play Lindy Shock for the first time. It's a huge draw for great European dancers and we're looking forward to sharing our music with them on the last day of camp and at the afterparty. It's been a couple years since we got to play busy London-town and there's sure to be new dancers in their always growing scene to play for.
In other news the band is 4 years old today! Our dynamic has grown and we continue to strive for our own sound while always playing homage to the greats of the swing era. We want to thank everyone so much for supporting us all this time!
We had a great time in Seoul, South Korea in April. Playing "Camp Swing It" is always great. So good to see the Asian swing dance scene in full force. We then played a swanky jazz club in the city for the first time which was a rare treat for us.
May brings a new gig in the USA - The Charleston Lindy Exchange in Charleston, South Carolina. It's been too long since we've gotten to play the south-east so we are looking forward to that.
In June we'll be returning to one of our favorite gigs - Säntis Hop in picturesque Teufen, Switzerland. Plus as a special bonus we have booked a club night in Zurich the following week. The club looks pretty special with it's waterfront vibe and swimming pool so we can't wait to check it out.
We're offering a free download of our original tune "Little Girl Blues" here on our website until February 10th. It's a "feminist anthem for our times" and a real swinger for the dance floor. Just click on the track in our music player and download for free!
The December 1st online release of our sophomore album "The Devils' Music" is here and we can't wait for you to hear it. You can buy the digital album directly through our website which puts the most money in our pocket, or you can find it on Bandcamp and CD baby (where you can buy a physical copy) as well as Itunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
