SwinGrowers – That’s Right!
The SwinGrowers, a 5 piece from Italy, took a more traditional approach to electro-swing, and formed an actual band, but replaced the role of drummer with DJ. Keeping swing alive, and evolving it for modern times, SwinGrowers made this “audition” video for That’s Right!, which is the second single off their second album, Remote. The video was filmed at London’s Rivoli Ballroom, a lush space with red velvet walls emblazoned with gold, illuminated by Austrian crystal chandeliers. It’s the only remaining 1950’s ballroom in London, and has been revitalized over the past 30 years to host music, dancing, and charity events. The 1950’s was somewhat the end of the swing era, where the style birthed new genres of jazz dance which took over popularity. Perhaps the perfect setting for a “modern swing” band which cherishes both the old and the new.
