Survivors Swing Band
A Connecticut-based jazz group comprised of “seasoned” jazz musicians, the Survivors Swing Band boasts thirteen instruments (piano, guitar, banjo, clarinet, cornet, among others) and a vocalist. The band easily re-creates the music of the nostalgic 1919-1954 dance band swing era. For the Stratford Library performance, the band will include some seasonal standards as well as popular swing favorites.
The concert is free and open to the public.
It is made possible through the Vin Corda and
Claudia McCoach Funds.
