|Mikki had always dreamed of having her own swing band, and in 2013 she began piecing together members to form a groovy sound unique to the vintage style she’d heard and loved growing up.
while it is unusual enough to find young players who are familiar with swing, big band and jazz from the ’20s-’50s, she was lucky enough to meet and perform with some fine young texas talent who also shared her passion for those eras.
making music is “almost as important as breathing”, and like louis armstrong said: “there are only two kinds of music: the good kind, and the other kind…i play the good kind”,
so do these young cats.
while they cover old classic cowboy crooners, some smooth sinatra, and a shnazzy jazz tune here and there, most of the songs they dance around with are swing and western swing songs-some classics, some not-so-well-known.
