The Dutch Swing College Band

The Dutch Swing College Band

Europe's most swinging Jazz Band since 1945


During World War 2, the Nazis banned jazz music in the Netherlands. Several youngsters wanted to preserve this music against all odds. They practised secretly, copied illegal radio broadcasts and were determined to found a school for jazz music when the war was over: the Swing College. On Liberation Day, May 5th 1945, the Orchestra of the Dutch Swing College had its first public performance. Their members gave lectures, organised jazz meetings and started to teach jazz music. The name soon changed into Dutch Swing College Band. In 1960 the DSCBand (leading the field of traditional jazz in the Netherlands) became professional, won innumerable prizes and still performs successfully worldwide to this day.

Bratislava Hot Serenaders

Bratislava Hot Serenaders

Eastern Europe's Hottest Swing Band


Bratislava Hot Serenaders je unikátny orchester, ktorý sa pod vedením trubkára Juraja Bartoša už od sezóny 1991/1992 špecializuje na hot-jazzovú hudbu 20. a 30. rokov. Orchester patrí medzi svetovú špičku v autentickej interpretácii jazzovej hudby tohto obdobia, dôkazom sú ocenenia z európskych festivalov, ako aj pozitívne ohlasy a kritiky z celého sveta. V rokoch 2014, 2015 a 2016 absolvoval tento popredný slovenský jazzový orchester koncertné turné v Spojenom kráľovstve. Najlepšie skladby hot-jazzového repertoire odzneli vždy na 10 koncertoch v mestách od juhu Anglicka (Exeter, Marlborough, Londýn) cez srdce Británie (Birmingham) až po škótsky Edinburgh a Glasgow. O úspechu oboch letných turné svedčí pripravované turné v júli roku 2018.
