Victor Celania, the organizer of the band, started dancing in 2003 and fell in love with the music of the hot jazz, swing, big band and jump blues eras. Upon moving to Austin in 2011, he decided he wanted to put a band together to play specifically for dancers. His journey has taken him and the band to Charleston, SC, Atlanta, GA, Tulsa, OK, Houston, TX, Dallas, TX and San Antonio, TX, in addition to Austin. The band continues to strive for a period-accurate but unique sound and to keep the dancers on their feet!
During the day, Victor is a professional clothier and custom clothing specialist with Capra and Cavelli, a locally owned Austin institution since 1995! Check out his work at www.instagram.com/celaniacustomclothing and like his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/celaniacustomclothing!
