Swing Time – The Musical

I’ve enjoyed playing several shows with Mike Thornton’s (of Capitol Steps) production called Swing Time, which takes place in a radio studio during the second World War. The cast of 3 couples sings and dances through all sorts of swing music from that era, including numbers like In The Mood, Tuxedo Junction, and Sing Sing Sing.

The band consists of piano, drums, and bass, and in several places the singers do a really great job mimicking the horn section of a large brass band. It’s quite fun to watch (and play in!), especially if you know the tune. Even if you don’t, you’re bound to recognize something … so come check it out at the Navy Memorial Center in downtown DC! Here’s everything you need to know about Swing Time – The Musical.
