The Swing Tones featuring their 13-member Big Band, bring you back to the days of vocal jazz by blending big band sounds and nostalgic tunes of the swing era, with 7-part tight vocal harmonies and postmodern twists.
The Swing Tones debuted at Summer Swing Nights in 2018 at The Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo with a mission to preserve the legacies of big band and swing music while contemporizing the experience with some modern twists. Highlighting vocal harmonic sounds such as “The Andrews Sisters” and “The Manhattan Transfer,” The Swing Tones also take modern tunes and "swingify" them, similar to the popular Postmodern Jukebox.
Executive Producer and founder Aaron Jacobs says this is the ultimate big band experience accessible for all generations of people in Southern California. “We are keeping high quality musical experiences, interactive dance concerts of a former era, alive,” Jacobs said. “For me, SSN is the flagship show and a chance to highlight our Swing Tones sound, unadulterated.”
