6-piece NYC/Westchester jazz group, THE SWINGAROOS, entertain with their original 1930-40's-inspired tunes as well as forgotten goodies by world-famous bandleaders Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw. Their jive is hot swing with hollywood class and a vaudeville spirit.
THE SWINGAROOS are led by Kimberly "Miss Kim" Hawkey (vocals/ tenor banjo/ washboard/ mouth "trumpet") and Assaf Gleizner (piano) and supported by a bass player, drummer, horn section and special guest vocalists. Together, they have performed for fine establishments such as the Hudson Hotel, the Art Deco Society of NY, and Under St. Mark's Theatre, where they premiered their original swing music revue, "Soundies".
Founding members and newly-engaged couple, Assaf Gleizner and Kimberly Hawkey, have an award-winning performance history with American Traditions Vocal Competition in Savannah, GA (Gold Medal and Johnny Mercer Award), the Jazz Forum Arts Vocal Competition in Westchester County (Winner) and the Cabaret Showdown (September 2013 Winner/ February 2014 All-Star Champion). Other credits include performances at Birdland, Jazz at Kitano, Under St. Mark's Theatre, The Art Deco Society of NY, the Belleayre Music Festival, White Plains Performing Arts Center, and Caramoor Center for Music & the Arts in Katonah, NY.
Now get out of that wet blanket, pour yourself a dry martini and make it a real, hot clambake with THE SWINGAROOS, ya hear?
