Swingparty with the Shirt Tail Stompers
This swing party weekend is packed with wonderful things! Not only, that the great Ramona (USA) & Remy (FR) will give wonderful Lindy Hop Workshops, no, we also invited an amazing band from England for the Saturday Night Party, the Shirt Tail Stompers. The Shirt Tail Stompers have quickly been recognised as one of Europe's best social dance bands. Formed in 2010 for the London Lindy Exchange and led by Trumpeter Steve Coombe, they have played numerous dance camps and shows throughout Europe. They have a passion for swing music and movement, with their extensive knowledge and experience of social dancing, they are definitely the band to dance to. Truly appreciating the art of swing and knowing it's place in history, they are heavily influenced by Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Wingy Manone and many other greats from the swing and trad jazz era of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. They are also influenced by the likes of the early Duke Ellington, Sidney Bechet and the old musical roots of New Orleans. And for getting you dancers even more connected with band, they will give a musicality class before the party!
By the way, you can bring your not-yet-dancing friends to the party and to the free LindyHop Schnupperkurs to get them hooked to the swing dancing virus.

Free Musicality Class with the Band
