HOT CLUB OF SPOKANE ELECTRO-SWING SHOWS
What's Electro-Swing? Angus Harrison called it "a pulled pork sandwich shoved down a saxophone." But what does he know anyway!?
Electro-Swing seems to have begun sometime in the 1990s, and the genre has drawn significant audiences in the last five years or so, especially following the rise of Postmodern Jukebox.
Electro-Swing mixes vintage music from the 1930s and '40s with hip hop and house. Hot Club of Spokane will be performing songs like Sing Sing Sing, Happy Feet, and Swing Brother Swing - from early jazz and the swing era - as well as songs like Put A Lid on It - from the swing revival of the 1990s - all with a nice, fat dance beat.
And no, it's not just a DJ remixing tunes and mashing them up. We'll have a full 7 piece band on stage, performing live.
Here's our first ever music video with a teaser of our "That Man/Sing Sing Sing" mix:
