Palace Avenue Swing
Featuring a swinging rhythm section and hot horns up front, Palace Avenue Swing takes it inspiration from the small groups of the 1930-50s such as Count Basie, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Christian and Benny Goodman — with vocal inspiration from Bille, Ella, Aretha and Peggy Lee to name but a few.
With the wonderful Cherise Adams-Burnett on vocals, the band is guaranteed to fill the dance floor and swing out in style!
