Swing Deluxe is a Parisian septet that has been playing for swing dancers since 2012. We are proudly co-organizing one of the most popular swing events in Paris, « Le bal swing du Chalet du Lac », together with the dance school Shake That Swing.
Launched in sept 2012, « Le bal swing du Chalet du Lac » gathers from 400 to 600 dancers each month at le Chalet du Lac de Saint Mandé, one of the largest swing venues in Paris. The party goes on for hours with demonstrations, DJs and live music sets. Our event is attended mainly by Lindy Hoppers but Blues, Balboa and Shag dancers are welcome!
We play many other swing events in France and in Europe. Lindylicious 2015-2018 (Paris), Balberna 2013-2018 (Switzerland), Cagliari Lindy Circus (Italy), Paris Balboa Lindy hop Blues workshop, Normandy 2017-2018… We will be performing in Sweden in december for the 2018 edition of the Snowball. Each time we care to adapt our set list to the swing dance(s) of the event.
Teacher’s Outro – Lindylicious Festival 2016
We choose from 70+ tunes list to build our sets : 3 to 4 minutes songs covering a wide range of tempos (116 – 220 BPM). We can play for all swing dancers, from Lindy to Balboa 😉
Our band plays a mix of swing big band classics (Basie, Ellington, Louis Jordan, Jimmie Lunceford…) and small bands tunes (Benny Goodman sextet). We also love to sing songs from Slim and Slam, the Cats and the fiddle and great singers like Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald.
All classics are rearranged especially for our septet’s unique section: trumpet, tenor sax, violin and guitar. And we are also proud to write unique arrangements and our own compositions in the style of the classics.
Most of all WE LOVE YOU DANCERS!
