One of the best small swing era groups in the Washington D.C. and mid-atlantic region, Blue Sky 5 has been entertaining lindy hoppers, partygoers, wedding guests and fans of swing/big band music for nearly a decade! Airplay on 84 jazz and swing stations in USA and worldwide. Regular performers at the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, and appearances at Lincoln Center in NYC.
There's brilliant standards by Gershwin, Porter, Kahn, Loesser, in the style of Goodman, Shaw, Basie, and Ellington. Male and female vocals that bring to mind Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Harry Connick, Anita O'Day, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. High energy dance numbers to get you on your feet, as well as sentimental ballads. A new feature is the addition of latin reprertoire, sung by our drummer in the native tounge. And if that isn't enough, Blue Sky 5 can customize our tune list and appearance to fit your event theme. Tuxes for more formal events, or double breasted swing style suits, wingtips, and colorful ties for dances and receptions. We can even provide dance instruction to your guests from championship swing dancers, so everyone can get in the groove!
The band can be as small as a trio for cocktail/dinner music and as big as a seven piece for dancing, with a three horn section of clarinet, tenor sax, and trumpet.
When you hire Blue Sky 5, you can be assured your guests will have a memorable experience. So add a touch of class to your next event and contact us today!
