Hard Drivin' Swing for Your Dancing Feet!

Our Mission: 

Our group seeks to recreate, in our own unique way, the danceable styles of the 1920's-50's. We arrange our sets and choose our songs choices specifically to keep you on the dance floor as long as possible! The size of the group can be customized to meet your requirements from four to seven people. We strive to bring energy and fun to your next dance, wedding or special event! 

The Players: 

Originally from Virginia, bandleader Victor Celania moved to Austin in 2011 to pursue his passions more fully and fulfilled part of that mission by starting this band. His main gig is as a professional custom clothier for his company Established Sartorial. You can learn more about that: here

Hailing from New York, bass player Josef Pelletier lends an energetic and jovial attitude to the music. Having played hot jazz and swing for over 30 years, David Jellema has swung with the best of 'em and has excellent tone and taste on both the cornet and the clarinet. Tenor saxophonist Steven Vague knows how to drive and make the sax sing like the stars of yesteryear! He's played all over the US and is sure to wow you with his energetic, fun style! 

These guys will keep your feet stampin' all night long! Be sure to drink enough water and bring a couple changes of clothes! You're gonna need 'em!
