BAND: Dance away all that ails you with a healthy dose of swing, blues & R&B from the San Francisco Medicine Ball Band! Founded by guitarist David Sturdevant and renowned for its blend of funky swing and New Orleans- rooted R&B, the Medicine Ball Band has been playing together for over 38 years and always turns out with a host of talented jazz and R&B musicians playing great dance music.
DJ: Autumn LaVarta loves to spin vintage jazz gems that he's collected over the years - often scoured from obscure swing music blogs - and he'll share them with us this week during the band break!
