About The Band
Taken from their website:
Led by longtime musician and swing dancer Nirav Sanghani, the Pacific Six play tight arrangements of early jazz and swing tunes for dancers and more.
Their repertoire includes transcriptions of small group swing recordings by Benny Goodman, Johnny Hodges & Coleman Hawkins, fresh arrangements of well-loved standards, and vintage-inspired originals composed and arranged by Nirav.
Since early 2017, the band has been honing their sound in the swing dances of the San Francisco Bay Area, playing at weekly events such as The Breakaway, Shimmytown, Woodchopper’s Ball, and Wednesday Night Hop, as well as monthly events like Bal Haus and The Dancers’ Den.
