The sounds of country music & 1940's-60's western swing collide with this exciting band hailing from the Queen City, joined by Valerie Salstrom & the notorious Get Hep Swing Dancers! Featuring Cameron Cochran, Nick Fryer, Brad Myers.
The Midwestern Swing is a Cincinnati based band inspired by the great Western Swing bands of the 40s, 50s & 60s coupled with a reverence for the Queen City’s historic contribution to country music. Steeped in country, jazz and a love for song, The Midwestern Swing is equal parts tradition and modernity.
The Midwestern Swing’s sound centers around the dual lead melody lines of the steel guitar and the “standard”guitar that are held together by “four the bar” rhythm guitar. The groups’s repertoire features tight arrangements from the classic Western Swing and Great American Songbooks.
