Rhythm Junkies is a group of mostly amateur-musicians from Vilnius, which are working their way through recognition on a number of very simple but cozy objectives: to maximize the interest in the abandoned swing music in Lithuania, refresh their minds and, of course, have fun fun fun!
Rhythm Junkies consists of eleven people of all kinds, who have firstly fallen in love with the Lindy Hop dance and only then gathered together to make a change in the music people dance to: they decided that it should not only be the speakers that the music comes out of, but that it should also be guitars,accordions, clarinets, violins, horns and other authentic instruments which make the hearts shiver and the feet stir.
They call themselves the Street Swing Ensemble and are at their best in the fresh air, but when the weather chills they do not fall asleep and rather gather in bars, cafes, and other shelters where, obtained at least a small corner for the instruments, make it loud and groovy!
The souls and the hearts of all the Junkies are far in the roaring crying shouting and trampling 20 ‘s 30's and 40's and, until the time machine is invented, they travel there with the help of music, rhythm and dance.
