BOOK NOW

The Cape Town Swing Cats is a group of talented jazz musicians specialising in swing era tunes that will have your feet tapping and your booty shaking in no time. Partnering with the local Lindy Hoppers, they play regularly for the growing swing dance community as they bring back the vibrant sounds of the dance halls of Harlem and Sophiatown. Drawing on the giants of swing: Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Benny Goodman, as well as inspiration from the South African swing bands of the time like the Manhattan Brothers, the energy is undeniable and matched only by the dancing it inspires.

Group members have between them performed at the highest levels of the South African music industry (National Arts Festival, Cape Town International Jazz Festival), participated in popular bands (Grassy Spark, The Rudimentals, Nomadic Orchestra) and classical ensembles (Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra), and enjoyed licensing deals from record labels in France and Germany.
