Jennifer Salisbury's Swingin' Elixir
The Swingin' Elixir - well-known and well-loved on the swing circuit for over a decade, their new line-up with long-time vocalist Jennifer Salisbury at the helm will have you on the dance floor from very first "1,2, you know what to do!"
Today is a huge milestone for this fabulous project that's bringing brand new swingin' tunes to life from Melbourne composer and producer Mark Morand. We'll be filming the 16th song in this epic 32 song cycle - the half-way mark! Here's your chance to get your dancing shoes around some modern classics, and dance your way into our next clip!
The Pearly Shells
Over more than 15 years, The Pearly Shells have gained a reputation as Melbourne’s premier Jazz/Swing/RnB band with a classic style and look reminiscent of the Golden Age of Basie, Goodman, Ellington and Brother Ray Charles, featuring the sensational Julie O'Hara fronting the full 10-piece Pearly Shells experience.
Popular swing DJ Rusty will keep the beats pumping between sets with his classic group dancing routines.
