Based around the sultry and intimate vocals of Deborah Carew, this group is dedicated to evoking the atmosphere and sophistication of Swing era song! We cover the music of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael and the other giants of the Golden Age of popular song. Think Ella Fitzgerald, Nat 'King' Cole, Julie London and the other icons of the era.
This group is well suited to background music, for example for diners.
We can function in any line up from duo to quintet, but the basic formation is a three piece group of vocals, acoustic guitar and double bass
