You won’t want to miss this New Orleans street swing swag

You’ll find it hard to stop your foot tapping along in time to the captivating sounds of the Rimutaka All Stars Dixie Swing Band.

This band was formed in early 2017 by a group of well-known and likeminded Wairarapa musicians to fill a gap in the musical scene providing the sounds of Dixie, trad and swing. The response to date to their lively, entertaining style has been overwhelmingly positive, likening them to the New Orleans street music sound.

Their repertoire includes many well-known numbers from some of the great composers including Cole Porter, Scott Joplin and Benny Goodman, with songs such as “Ain’t She Sweet”, “Sheik of Araby”, “Tiger Rag”, “Tin Roof Blues”, “Saints Go Marching In”, “So Do I”, “Sweet Sue”, “Baby Face”, “Five Foot Two” and others in the same vein.
