The Don Neely Swingtet
at Lake Merritt Dance!
We're happy to having the Don Neely Swingtet for our live band night in May!
About the Band:
For more than 30 years, Don Neely, band leader, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, composer and arranger, has been recognized as a pioneer of the 1920ʼs and 30ʼs “Hot Dance” and Swing revival. He and his Royal Society Jazz Orchestra, have performed at every major event in San Francisco, jazz festivals and clubs around the country as well as internationally, concertized on tour, and have been featured on radio and television. They have also recorded over 300 songs.
Don now shares his love of the small group jazz bands of the 1930ʼs and 40ʼs with his Swingtet. The group plays the same great music with an emphasis on the hot four-beat style of that era. You will really enjoy dancing to the Don Neely Swingtet.
