From Our Album

Bio

The L.A. Swing Barons are a 14-piece big band inspired by the vibrant dance halls of the 1930s swing era.  Based in Los Angeles, we aim to play the energetic music of bands like the Count Basie Orchestra, Duke Ellington and his Orchestra, and others that shaped the golden age of swing.

Our band consists of a full rhythm and horn section, as well as vocalists that capture the spirit of Jimmy Rushing and Billie Holiday.  We have played many venues and festivals throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, Central California, and the San Francisco Bay Area.  Our first studio album - Kansas City Stride- was released in late 2017.

Our standard configuration includes a vocalist, 4 saxophones, 2 trombones, 3 trumpets, drums, bass, piano, and guitar.
