Music

Trois soirées avec Naomi and Her Handsome Devils – Three Nights of Live Music!

Naomi & Her Handsome Devils are a 8 piece band striving for the sound of that swing era sweet spot. Naomi founded the Devils after working with some of the best bands on the swing dance/lindy hop scene, and as a top international lindy hopper herself she knew just what she wanted to hear on the dance floor and just who she wanted to play it. The Devils have decades of experience playing hot jazz as some of the top young talent in the Chicago and New York traditional jazz scenes, and Naomi hand picked her favorite musicians to come together and make music. Put it all together and you have a modern band with a vintage sound, swinging dance floors around the world.

DJ Steven Coombe

We’re happy to welcome Steven Coombe from London UK as our head DJ again this year at Swing Riot.

An international band leader and trumpet player, Steven has spent countless hours working out the kind of music that make people want to dance and keep dancing all night. Steve has led bands all over Europe playing for Lindy Hop festivals and competition weekends in London, Budapest, Paris, Berlin, Copenhagen, Vilnius, Dublin, Rome, Ghent, Amsterdam, Oslo and Herrang to name a few. The European Swing Dance Championship was headlined by Steve’s ‘European Swing All Stars’ big band.

Early Jazz Band

Le Early Jazz Band est un sextet de swing dynamique et chimiquement fait pour la fête ! Puisant sa musique dans le répertoire Jazz New-Orleans des années ’20 et Swing des années ’30 et ’40, c’est par des arrangements personnels tout en finesse, des improvisations endiablées et une incroyable complicité entre les membres que cet ensemble se distingue de la masse.
