THE SWING SHOUTERS

Swing Shouters is, above all, a quintet with an overflowing and communicative energy that captures and arranges the great Jazz and Swing standards of the 30’s and 40’s. Ideal for dancing and for good reason, the group was formed around the dance association “Swing & Shout”. After more than 200 concerts in France and Europe, the quintet decided to develop new formulas ranging from the small band (septet) to the big band, through the rhythm and blues of the 50 ‘and the sound of New Orleans.

PROFESSOR CUNNINGHAM & HIS OLD SCHOOL

This popular New York based band performs the most swinging and grooving repetoire deeply steeped in the New Orleans tradition; from early jazz to early R&B in the aesthetic of Sidney Bechet, Fats Waller, Professor Longhair and even Fats Domino!

Formed 2 years ago by in-demand reedman and vocalist Adrian Cunningham – Australian native based in NYC, – Professor Cunningham and His Old School jazz band consists of some of the most energetic and accomplished musicians on the New York scene. It has been a regular hit in the NYC underground party and swing dance scene since it’s formation in 2012; performing at some of the city’s finest speakeasy shows (Shanghai Mermaid, Gemini and Scorpio, NY Hot Jazz Festival) and regularly performing to packed houses at some of the city’s best swing venues (Cutting Room, Swing 46, The Back Room).

POL PRATS QUINTET

Pol Prats is one of the most recognized jazz musicians in Catalonia, and during the last years he has developed different swing formations for lindy hoppers, in quartet format, quintet, octet and even more extensive formations. He has been part of the Swim Out Costa Brava family from the beginning, even making a battle of bands along with Big Swing Shot in the 2017 edition.

This year he will come in quintet format, with other top musicians like Juli Aymí, and they will give us their best version during the concert in the Nautical Club, and they will also close the festival in the Pool Party on Sunday.
