The return of Indigo Swing front man from SF: JOHNNY BOYD and his band, plus Stompy Jones: REMATCH: THIS TIME IT’S PERSONAL!
Indigo Swing in the early 90’s hit the dance-band circuit, bringing
boogie-woogie and jump-blues music back from the recesses of memory to a
nation crazed with jitterbugging and two-toned shoes. This is when and
how he learned the textured arrangements and evocative compositions that
were pure jittersauce.
Long-acclaimed as one of the most versatile vocal performers of today,
Singer-songwriter Johnny Boyd seamlessly blends swing, jazz, pop,
country, gospel and rock, bringing back the nostalgic charisma of a
bygone era, while taking risks with his arrangements that truly show
confidence in his talent. 2012 marks the much-anticipated release of
Boyd’s full-length album entitled Never Been Blue.
Little David Rose's (original Indigo Swing bass player) thumpin'
stand-up bass, the double-shuffle drumming of Lee Beary, and the bounce
piano of John Cocuzzi provide the rhythmic foundation of the band's jump
style. Riffing on top is the trumpet sound of Robert Dehlinger and Erv
Ervin on the saxophone. These two fellas create the fireworks of vintage
rhythm and blues. The charming Hank Maninger on vocals and lead guitar
have become a trademark of Stompy Jones.
With a fiery ukulele and a red-hot jazz guitar, Victor & Penny put
the swing, the jump, the dance and the roll in early twentieth century
rock and roll. This Kansas City based duo brings antique pop to life
with their sonic archeology as well as creating clever original songs.
They impress and delight with charm and hot licks - they are "...an
absolute rollicking blast."
