Have you heard the latest Swing Sensation? Pack up and come fly away with the best swing band around. Picture yourself dancing cheek to cheek with your loved one, to music of a time less hurried, where women adorned in hats and gloves were wooed by handsome strangers in the night. To a time when crooners like Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong were turning jazz in to a popular art form.
Swing Central recreates the mood and ambience of the Fabulous Forties and fifties, to celebrate the class and style of times gone by. For older folk, we hope to rekindle memories of the first time they heard these songs, and for the younger audience, expose them to a style and eleganace they have only heard about.
Indulge in a Martini, sit back and relax to the smooth crooning vocals of Mr Brad Leaver. As sophisticated and profound as anything by Tony Benett, Brad combines Ph.D. intellect with caveman machismo, mixed in a blender of pure swing, guaranteed to grab even the most Sinatra proof listener way down at the bottom of the soul. With the addition of three of Brisbanes finest musicians, the results can only be described as breathtakingly authentic.
