Big Band Jazz music might not be as popular today as it was back in the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s, but don’t tell that to one local group who performs the classic music right here in Columbus Ohio. “Swing’s the Thing” Big Band, provides some of the time-honored sounds reminiscent of the swing and big band era on a regular basis and will perform this Friday, March 12th at the The Four Seasons Columbus.

The 16 piece big band plays music from a variety of newer artists along with a number of tunes from the books of such legends as Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, and Woody Herman. Swing’s the Thing’s repertory covers a wide range of dance styles that include swing, rock, ballad, blues, cha cha, rumba, mambo, samba, waltz, disco, foxtrot and even polka!
