Gentlemen & Gangsters
A local band but widely known by Lindy Hoppers around the world. They play New Orleans hot jazz with a touch of swing. Focusing on authenticity in content and delivery, as well as a solid, driving rhythm, the group strive to play music that moves you and that stays true to the style of jazz giants. They perform all over Europe on a regular basis and dancers from all over the world have praised them for their energy, presence, and sensitivity to what matters to a dancing audience.
A local band that plays regularly in Gothenburg but not yet so much abroad. Rallarswing consists of a majority of dancers, and therefor they really know how to play music for dancers.
Saturday afternoon at 2Lång
The socialist-feminist swing collective Cats & Dinosaurs is the latest addition to the Gothenburg lindy scene, sweeping through the ballrooms of southern Sweden with their unique quirky style and radical lyrics. Their repertoire is a mix of original political swing songs in Swedish and those classics we all know and love. Always performed with a naive playfulness and bluesy roughness that honors the creativity and radicalism of the jazz pioneers. And being swing dancers themselves, they make sure to keep the music danceable.
