Imperial Swing Orchestra

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 1999 at 12:00 AM

The 10-piece (that's a five-piece horn section, mister!) Imperial Swing Orchestra will make your dancing feet giddy and fingers start to poppin'! This is no mere retrofitted rockabilly or ironic posture of a fashion statement. The Imperial Swing Orchestra has a reverence for rollicking big band-era dance floor fillers, sultry torch intimacies and smoldering pre-rock 'n' roll American music -- and the chops to pull it all off handily! -- that doesn't come down the road too often. The perfect combination of style and substance.
