Butterfly Swing Band plays exuberant, swing/jazz grooves with hot off the press improvisation and syncopation.  While drawing primarily from the time-honored vintage swing masters such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Benny Goodman, as well as more contemporary artist such as Imelda May, Nellie McKay, Diana Krall, Connie Evingson, including a couple of original tunes as well.  To add a little seasoning to our repertoire we include bossa novas, cha chas, blues numbers, waltzes and ballads to enhance your listening and dancing experience.

Our goal is to create harmony between our music and you, the dancer, in a way that allows you to improvise and syncopate to the live swing jazz era and the contemporary dance music we love to play.

Our song tempos and rhythms vary so they can warm you up and cool you down. The music is full of life and creativity with an infectious rhythm, uncluttered textures, spirit and senuality, that reaches out to you, the dancer, & invites you in to celebrate and play.
