A powerhouse band from Indiana that's played from Europe to Florida to Sacramento to the IU Swing Club and the the Naptown Stomp Lindy Hop Society, and a bunch of places in between. They don't get over this way too often so don't miss this great sound!
Here they're doing Sweet Georgia Brown:
This group gets around! Recently up at
Grugelfest, and regional events like
Decatur's Juvae Jazz Fest and the
Suncoast Jazz Classic in Florida. They do dance events like Naptown Stomp Lindy Hop Society, and at the IU and Rose-Hulman swing dance clubs.
They came together in 2010 and take their name from the often-overlooked Satchmo tune, The Sunset Stomp Cafe.
The band: Robin Hopkins on banjo + co-leader, Kathleen Miller- vocals + co-leader; Larry McWilliams- trumpet; Bill James- clarinet; Dan Hughey- trombone; Mike Lucas- piano; John Valdez- drums; Jesse Wittman- bass.
