The SnapD review of our West End Jazz Gala - 2021

In the lock-down year of 2021, the band rehearsed on-line, recorded the "Celebrations!" album, and waited for an opportunity to play LIVE again - an opportunity that finally came on December 12th: the West End Jazz Gala 2021!  The band quickly recovered the traditional Swing Shift style and verve, delivering a performance that uplifted the assembled fans both old and new - it was a night to remember!   You can read the SnapD review by following this link...
