THE GEORGE GEE SWING ORCHESTRA
with Special Guest Vocalist John Dokes & a Lindy-Hopping Dance Duo!
Get ready to jump, jive and wail to patriotic and all-American tunes at this swingin’ Independence Day celebration! The George Gee Swing Orchestra is the swingin’-est, blowin’-est, heppest classic big band in New York City! They are in residence at Swing 46 in Manhattan and have dazzled audiences from Boston to Tokyo, including gigs at the “I Love Jazz” festival in Brazil and Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing festival.
“The swingin’est band in the land!” – Frankie Manning

DAVINA AND THE VAGABONDS
With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, Davina and The Vagabond’s shows are filled with New Orleans charm, Memphis soul swagger, dark theatrical moments, and tender gospel passages.
This rollicking quintet has played festivals from Ontario to Romania, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, and more. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, and Betty Boop, but she is a true original!
“…easily among the breakout stars at this year’s [Monterey Jazz] festival.” – Monterey Herald
