Bio

The old fashioned swing company is a band made by swing musicians and dancers. They met each other on the swing jams of Barcelona, being the ones who where always playing and dancing at the same time. These constant jams brought the members of the group together and formed a band to tour Europe playing on the streets and swing events.

The group’s unique personality is reached by their instruments: the trombone, clarinet and washboard give to the band an original New Orleans Swing sound, the mix with the accordion and the manouche guitar adds a gypsy feeling to the band, the different voices of the members, and the boogie-woogie and stride sound of the piano have a unique sound.

The group has a proposal for the swing community in Barcelona. They are now taking part of an artistic space called L’Occulta Asocicación Artística from Barcelona. There, their principal goals are to build a community of artists offering concerts, classes and space for people to show their artistic ways of comunicating, closely linked to jazz, swing and dancing.
