About The Album
Taken from the website:
“Live at the Uptown Swingout” was recorded in the summer of 2019 in Minneapolis, MN, USA at a big dance event.
Though we have 2 other albums under our belt this was our first live recording and it felt right doing it in Naomi's hometown of Minneapolis at the lindy hop event The Uptown Swingout.
Our amazing 3 horn line-up is from across the US with Jonathan Doyle from the Seattle area, Gordon Au from New York city, and Charlie Halloran from New Orleans.
They were backed by our strong rhythm section- the 3 original band members who were there from the start: Jake Sanders, Jared Engel, and Dalton Ridenhour, and this recording had special guest Josh Collazo on drums.
Last but not least bandleader and vocalist Naomi was in the driver's seat, choosing tunes from our repertoire that would swing the dance floor.
We culled the best takes from 2 swinging nights of music and dancing, with almost all being original arrangements that you can't hear any other band play.
Plus we have a new song that Naomi wrote herself- our first tune on the album “Gone So Long”.
