(The worlds most dangerous Band) from Stockholm, Sweden..
Hornsgatan Ramblers is a jazz band from Stockholm Sweden. Their main focus is set on rhythm and swing, from the more or less legal ballrooms of New York in the thirties and forties. With the bands' own adaptations and arrangements of the music of jazz giants such as Duke Ellington, Jimmie Lunceford, Count Basie, Cab Calloway and Charlie Christian, the Ramblers have developed a sound of their own. By now that unique sound has brought the band to countries such as Greece, Italy, Germany, Finland, Turkey, Lithuania, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, etc. And of course all over Sweden. The band was started in the autumn of 2009, when a few swing dancers in Stockholm decided to form a band and to start playing the music that they loved to dance to, to explore it further and reach a deeper understanding of it. The band name comes from a street in the neighbourhood in Stockholm where most members work and live, and where the world famous Chicago Swing Dance Studio is located – and in which the very first rehearsals took place. Several of the band members also dance in the renowned swing dance company Harlem Hot Shots and teach swing dancing, and have won and judged numerous dance contests all over the world.
Ladies & Lads Swing Orchestra are inspired by the early masters of traditional jazz and the following swing era. You will hear songs delivered with nostalgic vibes from by gone times, all wrapped up in a playlist aiming to tantalize everyone longing to dance. After many years of participating in jazz festivals, international lindy hop and balboa events, The band knows the trick behind a successful floor-filler. This fine musical combo, all professional musicians, will do their voodoo that they do so well..
Our MC and DJ for the great weekend!
