TWO SPECTACULAR SWING BANDS IN ONE STELLAR SWING CAMP

PREPARE FOR AN EXPLOSIVE JAM

gShirt-Tail-Stompers

THE SHIRT TAIL STOMPERS

Casey-Macgill

MESCHIYALAKE


The Shirt Tail Stompers is one London’s top vintage jazz bands, who have quickly made a name for themselves at home and internationally. They are heavily influenced by Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Wingy Manone and many other greats from the swing and trad jazz era of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s! Lindy Hoppers are very close to their hearts and the band have relished making people’s feet move all over the world.

Meschiya Lake has come a long way since her South Dakota Opry and traveling circus days, and she’s not done yet. In fact, far from it. Relocating to Europe in the summer 2018, and joining forces with the already established, stunningly talented Dizzy Birds, of Berlin, Ms. Lake and company will be, once again, setting the bar exceedingly high for our standards of musician and showmanship, jazz, and joy.”

And so this year, we’re excited to bring to you the collaboration between the two bands and can’t wait to listen, dance, smile, and laugh with all of you at Big Bang 2019!
