This young and fresh formation is the brainchild of Lauretta Grechi Galeno, a jazz singer and swing dancer, who founded it in Genoa in 2017.
The intention is to offer an entertainment product to an swing dancers\’ audience as well as to a wide public (conventions, dance parties, vernissages, etc.).
The band\’s full line-up consists of six elements. The arrangements are mainly original and composed by the musicians themselves according to the stage requirements and the particular atmosphere of the band, which recalls the great swing musica era and Italian jazz songs from the 1930s and 1940s as well as some timeless jazz standards.
In 2018 the Peppermint Swing Band launched an unreleased song, written by Lauretta Grechi Galeno , composed and arranged by Gianluca Salcuni, entitled \”Con il naso all\’insù\”, which in just one week got over 1000 views on the band youtube channel and continues to receive a strong consensus from the public, even in live performances.
In summer 2019, they attended to a really important summer jazz festival in Sanremo (Zazzarazzaz Festival) where they played one hour set, playing unpublished songs and classical swing music.
