Electro Swing with Steampunk stylings, an old genre with a modern twist, commence 2 dates in February, then every first Sunday of the month! 

Local act SWING KITTY bring their swanky style of Electro Swing. ‘Swing reinvented’. An infused mix of house beats with old time swing.  

Embracing this international genre, Swing Kitty aka Mike Rivett, Nikki Doll and Stan Petratos,
have been perfecting their sound and swing stylings to launch in 2020.   

Mike expressed “It’s all house beats, mostly ‘electroey’ swing, sometimes Nikki’s originals are beat mapped to the 4 on the floor.
In between “songs” I loop old 30s swing, cut them up and painstakingly time correct them.
Perfect to dance to or sit and enjoy, of course with the toes tappin and crafted concoctions from the bar!”

Swing Kitty will be supported by ASHCATS SOUND SYSTEM, feat. DJ Phil Tesla, mixing his passion for
swing, gypsy jazz and jazz improvisations fused with electric dance. The result... Steampunk Electro Swing.
It's swingin' good and guaranteed to encourage all music-lovers to shake their stuff.
Technically exciting, dynamic and catchy, these songs feature jazzy hooks, bouncy beats and pop arrangements with bring a spontaneous atmosphere that is Sunday's SWING SOCIAL.

As Swing Dancing (or Lindy Hop) ‘the dance’ from the 1930s & 40’s, is making a resurgence all over the world, dance company SWINGRAYS have embraced the genre and taken their passion to a new level by paying forward with dance lessons to anyone who wants to learn.
