Blue Rhythm Band
Andrew Dickeson's "Blue Rhythm Band" is a band for dancers. They do what Basie did - they play 4 solid beats to the bar - and no cheating!
Australian Lindy Hoppers were looking for a band leader with one foot firmly in the Savoy Ballroom, and the other setting down a rock-solid beat. Andrew had a group of musicians who wanted to play for audiences who could dig what they were doing.
The Blue Rhythm Band is a swinging dance band - playing music created by jazz musicians for the ultimate jazz fans - dancers! Drawing upon the tradition of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Jimmy Lunceford and others – this band is the “real deal” for swing music.
Fresh from anchoring the 2019 Melbourne Swing Festival, we are thrilled to welcome Andrew and his band to Canberra!
