The era of "Nightclubs" and "Lounge Acts" may be long gone, but A Swingin' Affair strives to recapture that
feeling of a special "Night on the Town", enjoying drinks with friends and experiencing special live entertainment
Drawing upon the Great American Songbook, we have tried to identify the songs and sounds that will remain
timeless for all listeners, long after other musical trends have come and gone, and then give those songs a
snappy, exuberant treatment that harkens another era. That era featured the greatest singers paired with the
greatest musical arrangements, and it saw its apotheosis in the 1950s and 1960s.
Of that era: The Singers, there are many: Sinatra, Martin, Davis Jr., Cole, Fitzgerald, Clooney, Lee, etc.
The Arrangers: Riddle, May, Mandel, Jones, Hefti and so on. All creating the most exciting sounds ever
conceived in Popular Music.
A Swingin' Affair distills these myriad sounds to a few basic elements: jazz guitar, stand-up bass, swingin'

The members of A Swingin' Affair are Tom Giampa (guitar), David Deratzian(bass), Greg Webster (drums) and
Brooke Sudlow (vocal).
It's the Swinginist!, and its all in the "Key of Swing"!
