George Gee Swing Orchestra

Summer Jamfest 2018

Saturday, July 21 at 8 PM
Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center

The George Gee Swing Orchestra style in a nutshell: Happy music played by happy musicians for happy people!

The George Gee Swing Orchestra packs a lot of swing into compact songs and tight, well-organized sets. Long enough to catch a groove, and short enough to catch your breath! 30 Years of Swingin’ – and still going! The George Gee Swing Orchestra was the first big band to play on MTV. The band was featured in an NBC-TV movie and has been spotlighted on “Entertainment Tonight,” “Live with Regis & Kathie Lee,” “Cake Boss,” “Live from Lincoln Center,” and in appearances on CNN and MSNBC. The band also provided specially scored music and made an “animated” appearance on an episode of the Fantastic Four cartoon for Marvel Comics.

GGSO has dazzled audiences from Boston to Beverly Hills and from Zurich to Tokyo. The highlight of Summer 2012 was touring Brazil (Brasilia, Belo Horizonte and Rio de Janeiro) as part of the “I Love Jazz” festival, with crowds of up to 10,000 new fans! Other exciting recent experiences include annual headliner spots at Lincoln Center’s prestigious Midsummer Night Swing festival, a two-week engagement of the full-scale supper club show called “Sleigh Bells Swing!” at the Edison Ballroom in Manhattan, and a memorable corporate show at Disney World with the legendary comedian (and noted jazz aficionado)  Bill Cosby.

Whenever possible, when the George Gee Swing Orchestra hits the road, all the band’s core NYC-based members travel together. This adds greatly to the band’s musical unity and camaraderie and helps maintain the signature George Gee style. Learn more about the players.

The band has a mammoth tour resume – including top swing clubs, swing dance societies, and “lindy exchanges” across the US, numerous tours of top concert halls, and powerful “Battles of the Bands” in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Quebec.
