Third Coast Swing has been playing the music of The late Belgium born Romani Gypsy, Django Reinhardt & his band, The Hot Club Of Paris 1930’-1940’s. Think Louis Armstrong with a French accent. Third Coast Swing has changed it up a bit and is currently touring with the Detroit native Dave Bennett, Violinist Grant Flick , Vocalist Ella Jury Jarvis & Pianist Andrew Henley. Ella and our guitarist Kaedin Plummer did a deep dive on early jazz classics by Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Billy Holiday and then arranged these songs to fit Third Coast Swings eclectic style.
Third Coast Swing has performed with National Touring acts such as Frank Vignola, Denis Chang, Jimmy Grant, Dave Bennett, The Midwest Gypsy Jazz Fest in Madison, WI April 2022 and Feb 2023. Third Coast has been playing MI festivals as of late and would love to continue that tradition in 2023.
Third Coast Swing has performed regionally at The West MI Jazz Society, The Ludington Amphitheater, The Ludington Area Center for the Arts, Bell’s Kalamazoo, Detroit Jazz Society, Crooked Tree Art’s Center, Kerrytown Concert House, Playhouse at WhitelakeRamsdell Theater, Westshore Performing Arts and more.
