Green Mountain Swing
Green Mountain Swing is an all-volunteer, 17-piece big band.  They play music from the swing era, when swing was king, as in the immortal bands of Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and others.  They also include music from the “bop” and “post bop” periods which followed and throw into the mix many modern tunes and music from the Latin field.  Here’s their Repertoire.  You can also listen to several recent recordings.  

They are available to play at music festivals, craft fairs, dances, weddings, reunions, and other social gatherings.

An 11-piece band playing the finest in Blues, Funk, R&B, and things that make you move...
Find them on Facebook to see and hear them in action.

Red Hot Juba
Red Hot Juba plays Blisterin' Hot Countrified Jazz and Green Mountain Swing. Using a shifting and impulsive mix of styles while carving out an approach all their own, Red Hot Juba can turn from dynamic jump-blues to bittersweet soul on a dime. With a growing reputation for long, high energy sets, the band will cover a broad and varied expanse of musical ground over the course of an evening, and enjoy the sights along the way.

Starline Rhythm Boys
Danny Coane, the rockin' pride of Vermont, just keeps rollin'. He has fronted bluegrass, country, and blues bands, but the rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll act "The Throbulators" gained him national exposure. Billy Bratcher holds down the beat for the trio on upright bass. He toured with Texas Juke Joint King Wayne Hancock and became well known throughout the U.S. for mastering the unique "slap bass" style. Al Lemery shines bright under any stage light.

Hot Box Honey

Hot Box Honey spices up the music scene with jazz vocals by Jane Evans and jazz guitar by Greg Evans. Together with their hot band of local legends, Hot Box Honey showcases an upbeat eclectic mix of vintage and modern swing classics including their original song "Champlain Club" written for Vermont Swings!


Lewis Franco & The Missing Cats
Lewis Franco has been a fixture on the Vermont acoustic music scene for many years, entertaining audiences of all ages with clever and occasionally profound lyrics, delightfully tuneful melodies, and a fun-loving presence. Vermont Public Radio’s Robert Resnik calls Franco, “a brilliant songwriter—one of our very finest.”
