Swing and dance

Swing dance evening: Mr. Kong & His Swinging Monkeys (CZ)

The swing band will bring you a good mood on the dance floor.

This musical combo plays swing in the style of the turn of the 30s and 40s for listening and dancing. The band brings a lot of their own invention into their playing and some improvised pieces sound almost like written arrangements. This swing is definitely not boring and invites you to move from your chair to the dance floor. You will be guided through the basics of swing dance by lecturer Alexandra Sýkorová from the local Swing Znojmo dance community, thanks to which swing music has been dancing regularly every other week in Znojmo for several years.

Event description

Anyone can really come! You will have fun even you are in a couple or not. You can just listen to the music or get actively involved on the dance floor. And it really doesn’t matter if you can dance to swing music or not, you’ll definitely learn something new.

Four members of the Brno big band Swing Kong Dance Orchestra decided that, in addition to the orchestra, they would also like to play swing in a smaller ensemble, so a band called Mr. Kong & His Swinging Monkeys. Free inspiration is bands like Kansas City Five/Six, Fats Waller & His Rhythm, Slim & Slam, Cats & The Fiddle, Benny Goodman Quartet and others, as well as big bands of this era.
