The Swing Ninjas

VIDEO


 

The Swing Ninjas – started life as a busking trio playing small clubs and on the streets of Europe.  From humble beginnings, they’ve now grown into a 7-piece band writing and performing original new swing music – drawing on elements of New Orleans swing, spirituals, blues, cajun jazz, all influenced by the UK new swing movement.  Their debut original album, Do You Hallelujah? (Freshly Squeezed Records) – 11 original tracks, released April 1 2015 to rave reviews and a truly unique sound that works on both sides of the Atlantic.

Their take on the music taps into the lascivity and humour inherent in the 40s/50s original [bands], resulting in songs you actually want to return to. And, for that matter, dance to…The Swing Ninjas are that rare thing: a revivalist band that actually has contemporary relevance.
4 stars – Record Collector Magazine

The live show is high energy, full of humour, passion and grooves that guarantee dancing across ages.
