"Retro Swing" Hot Shots:
The "new" craze that's shaking the nation's youth into swinging again.
Just about any Up tempo Louis Jordan tune will work on this crowd of dancers.
Just drop in a slow one now and then (about every fifth song) to let the 'ol ticker return to a managable pace.
Many new bands are picking up on this money making group of dancers who come out in droves 500+.

The kids (and aging hipsters) are avoiding becoming their parents by becoming their grandparents
( I love that line). Anyway, here's a half dozen of the tunes I played at Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center.


 Big Mamou Mighty Blues Kings  
 High Ballin' Daddy Blues Jumpers  
 Work Baby Work Royal Crown Revue  
That's Where My Money Goes Indigo Swing  
 Rockin' At Midnight Honeydrippers  
 So Long Indigo Swing
 Medley: Swing It Ray Gelato and the Giants of Jive
