Once upon a time in America...

With plume boas and cigarette-holders tastefully decorated ladies in company with gentlemen who are dressed in exclusive custom-made suits, long coats and gaiters. They are flocking into the Cotton Club. Unimpressed by the present dubious guys, scantily dressed girls in the spotlight are tap-dancing to Charlston-rhythms, while the “High Society” has a good time under cover of the half-light. Champagne from heating pipes, whiskey from walking sticks – the Prohibition could not prevent the “Big Business” with alcohol.

“Hands up, ladies and gentlemen!…” Police raid?!… however no rubber truncheons but the sparkling barrels of Al Capone´s notorious gang are pointing at the well-to-do guests. While my men are gathering the collection, the guys of the band play my favorite song “Sweet and Hot”. Nowadays the trade with alcohol is legal, Al Capone is a legend and a dancing orchestra in the style of the 20/30s has distinct value. Such a rarity are “The Swingin´Bluebirds” from Dresden. The original sound of the Roaring Twenties, sometimes charming, sometimes bitchy, the sound of the early Thirties, if sweet or hot: When the Bluebirds present this fascinating music, they make the air vibrate. The band´s repertoire comprises mainly arrangements of Fletcher Henderson, Joe “King” Oliver, Duke Ellington, the McKinneys Cotton Pickers, the Mills Blue Rhythm Band as well as many less popular orchestras, whose performances already enchanted the audience 90 years ago.

“The Swingin´Bluebirds” have devoted themselves to this music in all its variety. Whether it is the double bass, the sousaphone or the bass saxophone – we have dedicated a part of our repertoire to each of these instruments. The band´s composition which is typical of the Roaring Twenties and early Thirties, enriched by solo and movement singing, enables an authentic interpretation. The orchestra invites you to concerts or even to a nostalgic dance party.

Get abducted by “The Swingin´ Bluebirds” into Jazz Age and experience an excellent mixture of the sound and flair of the turbulent Golden Twenties and Thirties, because… some like it hot!
