One of Europe’s top vintage jazz bands, The Shirt Tail Stompers have quickly made a name for themselves at home and internationally. Truly appreciating the art of swing and knowing it's place in history, they are heavily influenced by Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Wingy Manone and many other greats from the swing and trad jazz era of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. They also play a mean blues show, influenced by the likes of the early Duke Ellington, Sidney Bechet and the old musical roots of New Orleans.
Based in Strasbourg, this energetic band around the Lindy Hop guru, Cédric Clerc, knows a thing or two about swing music. Subtle, powerful, moody and playful, the Rhythm Outlines will get the dance floor moving in just about every direction.
In 2016, Pepper Avenue begun as a collaborative project between Lindy Hoppers and musicians in Basel. A combination of five individual musicians hailing from all corners of the globe, Pepper Avenue plays music in the style of the great swing bands, as well as more intimate arrangements of classic and lesser known tunes, especially tailored for dancing.
