World Cycling Revival welcomes Palace Avenue Swing to Herne Hill

Today, it is our pleasure to bring you news of more musical entertainment at the World Cycling Revival. Palace Avenue Swing, a stylish ensemble from Crystal Palace, will be taking to the stage on the Thursday afternoon to perform a selection of jazz and swing classics from the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole. Read more about Palace Avenue Swing here:

Palace Avenue Swing is a stylish and highly talented ensemble of musicians and friends who take great pleasure in performing and recreating the music and style of the golden era of hot jazz, blues and swing from the 1920-50s. The musicians who make up the band are highly regarded as some of the best in the UK, and have entertained to great acclaim throughout the years.

The 7-piece Dance Band performing here at the P&P World Cycling Revival features a stellar cast of players on Upright Bass, Guitar, Piano, Drums, Trumpet and Clarinet/Sax. The band always dresses up for a big occasion, and has its own specially arranged pad of music and custom embroidered velvet stand banners for a distinctive and authentic look on stage. The band are hugely influenced by countless musicians who include the pioneers of early jazz such as Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller, and also the elegant and swinging small group and big band swing of the likes of Django Reinhart, Lew Stone, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Count Basie.  Lead up front by the incredible singing talent of rising star Cherise Adams-Burnett, vocal inspiration comes from Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Sinatra, and Nat King Cole to name but a few.

As well as past and future performances for special vintage events like the P&P World Cycling Revival, the band has also gained a special reputation for their performances up and down the country for swing dance enthusiasts of this classic 1930/40s dance style, and also in collaboration with some of the leading Lindy Hop swing dance troupes in the country. Expect to see dancers swinging out in flamboyant style on the dance floor when the band hits its stride. A few surprises are certainly planned for this performance!
