DOC SCANLON'S INTERNATIONAL ALL STARS & SWING SHOT

Doc Scanlon's International All Stars-Finale at BarSWINGona 2017

Friday Party

DOC SCANLON'S INTERNATIONAL ALL STARS

One of the bands that will make us vibrate at the Festival Parties is DOC SCANLON'S INTERNATIONAL ALL STARS.

From its start in New Orleans, USA, to its trip up the Mississippi to Chicago, New York, and then all over the world, American Jazz has conquered the globe with Hot Jazz, Dixieland and the Big Band sound. It has become a truly international art form and Doc Scanlon's International All Stars will show us how it is done!

The band, based in Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain, takes the audience on a captivating musical journey through the history of Jazz; the music will be explosive, played and sung by some of the best musicians in Europe. Expect to hear the best of such artists as Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Nat King Cole and Louis Jordan.

The Allstars are also extremely happy to again feature internationally renown Catalonian vocalist Gemma Abrié, whose influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder and Dianne Reeves.
