We are excited to have Shraddha and the Prismaticks play at Swing Toronto for the very first time!

From the website https://shraddhapaimusic.com/prismaticks/ :
The band’s style combines a deep love for jazz from the 1930s to 1960s, with an international influence and a penchant for pop culture. The result is stylish, lyrical, and vibrant, with an appeal that cuts across generations and backgrounds.

Joining Shraddha (vocals), the Prismaticks comprise of familiar faces to dancers: Glenn Anderson on drums, Gram Whitty on bass, and Nat Edgar on keys.

The Sonny Balcones are back at Swing Toronto!

From their website https://www.thesonnybalcones.com/ :
“The Sonny Balcones are a Toronto based jazz band that combine
​30’s and 40’s swing with french jazz, bossanova, new orleans trad and sultry torch songs.
Their live show has a comfort and familiarity as if an old friend has invited you into their living room while they tell you about all their (mis)adventures since you last met.
You’ll find yourself snapping your fingers, tapping your toes,
or making eyes across the bar.
Music to swoon to.”
