SWINGIN’ BOTH WAYS

SWINGIN’ BOTH WAYS

When was the last time you heard a jazz ballad that really moved you to the core?

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

Do you recall the last time you enjoyed a meal or drinks with friends and were enveloped by the perfect background music that really set the mood?

Swingin’ Both Ways can play it every which way – The lush vocals of Kimba Scorpecci combined with the full jazz guitar and keyboard stylings of Ryan Griffith can take a back seat or strut up on center stage.

With a large repetoire and years of performance experience this duo will delight audiences of all ages and tastes, with an ecletic sound that moves from the blues to pop, from jazz to soul and is sure to set your feet a tappin’.

A typical night with these two musical cats might include – a couple of sets of standards and ballads, reminicscent of Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass, jazz with a bluesy edge and plenty of old favourites. As the night wears on and the crowd warms up, these two will belt out the latest Top 40, R&B and soul sounds, with some older tunes to keep all ears happy.

Combine this with a professional, friendly attitude, big smiles and a theatrical performance style and Swingin’ Both Ways will have the crowds coming back for more.
