The Olde Town Swing Band lays down a groove reminiscent of the classic "big band" swing era of the 1930's. Along with those familiar tunes, you'll also hear a tinge of New Orleans, vocalist Micah Parkin's home town. Clarinet master Bill Pontarelli insures that traditional American sound. You will wear out your dancing shoes with an evening of smokin' swing!

The Olde Town Swing Band is one of the premier Jazz, Swing, and Jump Blues bands in the Front Range area. Featuring outstanding vocals and instrumentation, the Olde Town Swing Band is the perfect choice for your next dance, wedding, restaurant, or bar event. Blending an exceptional lineup of Denver based musicians, Olde Town Swing Band is your choice to swing, jive, and jump.

Ms. Parkin's southern influence can be heard in her medley of "Sweet Georgia Brown/When the Saints Come Marching In" with hot clarinetist Bill Pontarelli showing off his deep New Orleans roots. The dance floor always becomes busy when the Olde Town Swing Band plays standards such as "Them There Eyes" and "Honeysuckle Rose". The mood takes on a sultry feel with the gypsy tinged sounds of "Dark Eyes" and "J'attendrai". The crowd has a familiar sort of line dance to "Tuxedo Junction". Micah loves the time tested standard of Ella Fitzgerald such as "What a Little Moonlite Can Do" and "Undecided". Come dance with us!
