THE JUMP CLUB

Your swing band !!!

From Granada we offer you an energetic, fun and elegant proposal aimed at lovers of dance. It is created from a common interest in the golden age of jazz and swing of the 30s and 40s. With a configuration of sextet made up of musicians of different nationalities: drums, double bass, piano, trombone, saxophone and vocals, it plays the classics of Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and others. In addition, some of its members belong to the community of dancers, so with their repertoire they adapt themes to dance styles such as lindy hop, balboa, blues, charleston or shag.
