The finest musicians in the state of Wisconsin join John in re-creating the sights and sounds of an era of which there will never be another.   SwingShift is comprised of five saxophones, three trombones, three trumpets, piano, bass and drums, with two vocalists (and a partridge in a pear tree).  

An incredible combination—SwingShift authentically performs the biggest hits of the most famous bands in the Big Band Era.
