THE L.A. SWING BARONS

ABOUT THE BAND

BIRTH OF THE BARONS The L.A. Swing Barons were conceived when two musicians turned swing dancers, Adam Lee and Conrad Friesen, were playing a gig in a small restaurant in Whittier, CA and lamenting the fact that there weren't any really hard swingin' Count Basie style bands to be heard in the LA area. Adam dug out his best Basie charts from a previous band he had run in Beijing, China and the Swing Barons were born.

The Swing Barons were formed with a view to emulate the really great bands of the swing era. We don't just run the band as a pickup gig band or a reading band. We rehearse regularly with a view to making the music tight and seamless in the way that the old school big bands did. Each player knew their role in the section, and they had worked together for thousands of hours in order to make the music tight. While we in the Swing Barons recognize the sacrifice that has to be made in terms of our individual investment in time and money, everyone in the band has signed on with that vision: to be the best and tightest sounding big band since the swing era.

Since half the band are swing dancers themselves in addition to being professional musicians, the Swing Barons really have a solid picture of what it is to be an authentic dance band. If you want punchy rhythms and soaring shout choruses, you've come to the right place.

The Swing Barons are:

Reeds:
Josh Jerome -Tenor
Fermin Chavez - Tenor
Warren Huang - Alto & Clarinet
Andres Santana - Alto
Adam Lee - Baritone/Alto

Trombones:
Brian Robbins - Tenor
Michael Rushman - Tenor
Ramsey Hampton - Tenor

Trumpets:
Tim Mathiesen
Adam Gerling
Jason Sandoval
Rudy Cortes

Rhythm:
Conrad Friesen - Bass
John Conti - Guitar
Kyle Jordan Mueller - Drums
Andrew Barrett - Piano

Come to Rusty's early and learn their "My Favorite Move."

WHAT IS "MY FAVORITE MOVE"?

This is a 1/2 hour class taught by one of our Rusty's & Lindy by the Sea regulars. These dancers are not professional instructors (as with our Friday guest instructors), and the class will have an informal air, with the dancers sharing one of their favorite dance moves.

MY FAVORITE MOVE gives you a chance to come to the dance a little early, warm up by learning a new move, and visit with your friends before the night's dancing begins.

If you would like to share one of your favorite moves, contact me via EMAIL, and I'll put you in the calendar.
