Music City Swing is a band with a mission: Preserving the original sounds of the glorious 1940s Swing Era. Founded by Karl Wingruber in 2003 and featuring an outstanding vocal quartet and some of the area’s best instrumentalists, this traditional large-style big band brings its sound to venues all across middle Tennessee.
Just close your eyes and listen to the band as they play Glenn Miller’s “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” , Benny Goodman’s “Sing, Sing, Sing”, The Andrews Sisters’ “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, Tommy Dorsey’s “I’m getting’ Sentmantal Over You” or Count Basie’s “One O’Clock Jump” and you could swear you were “back there”, listening to your favorite band at the Glen Island Casino or the Paramount Theater.
The band also performs the music of modern swing groups such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and selections from Michael Buble.
Swing music is alive and well, and Music City Swing is keeping it that way!
